Boston: The Stratford Company, 1927. First Edition. Lengthy and interesting signed presentation from Johnson on the front endpaper: "To Circum [Russel & reed?], like father like son-- who can tell them apart--- To the proprietor- of one who does him credit, and to him who is so remarkably young that his son looks (and acts) older than he does, oi! oi! This book, with the sincere fond wishes of its author. George A. Johnson." The book is dedicated to the Circumnavigators Club, which may apply to the presentation.

Illustrated with Photographs.
