1937 · [Middlebury, Indiana
by FISHER, Jonathan B.
[Middlebury, Indiana: The Independent Press], 1937. First Edition. Signed by Fisher on the dedication page. Someone has also written "Aboard Storm at Sea: Portland- Yokohama." on a frontispiece plate. Fisher was an Amishman who traveled to Europe in 1908, around the world in 1934 (the subject of this book), and on a cattle boat to Europe in 1952. Fisher kept detailed records, journals, wrote several travel books, and had a collection of signatures from all over the world. A scarce title, especially signed by Fisher. 12mo., pictorial tan wrappers; 320 pages. Illustrated.. Very Good (but there is a small chip to the lower corner of the rear cover; contents clean & tight with some light bumping corners). A fragile production, which is probably why so few original copies still exist.
