"When Mr. Francis Chichester took off from Sydney Harbour he had already flown from London to Sydney - but that, he decided, had been too tame. . . . This time he was looking for 'the most interesting countries I could find, uninhabired, hostile, or little known'; and his plan was to go as far as 'Elijah,' the seaplane, would take him. The flight was cut short by a spectacular crash at Katsura, on the south-east coast of Japan, but not before the author had met with many exciting experiences." - from dust wrapper blurb. ; 8vo.
