Across America by Motor-Cycle

New York: Longmans, Green & Co., 1922. Cloth. The uncommon 1922 1st edition of C.K. Shepherd's seminal early 20th century travelogue across America by motorcycle. Solid and VG in its dark-gray cloth, with just a touch of light spotting to the panels and a forgiveable degree of foxing through the text. Octavo, includes a number of crisp black-and-white photos detailing Shepherd's journey from New York to San Francisco and his return along the edges. A former British soldier recovering from the trauma of his service in the War, Shepherd logged roughly 5,000 miles on American soil with his motorcycle, creating in the process one of the great travel narratives of the 1920s. Very Good. Item #19420

Price: $500.00
