I Married Adventure, by Osa Johnson. First Edition 1940

Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott. 1940. (this is the First book club edition with Original Dust Jacket marked Book of the month selection on flap). Beautiful Zebra patterend cloth covered boards.

This beautiful edition of author Osa Johnson's seminal book. Rare to find in such beautiful condition, the Zebra cover is exceptional since it has always been protected by the dust jacket for the last 70 years.

The inside is very clean and vivid. Very light age color to it. The dust Jacket has done its job and protected the book, this dust jacket has wear and fading on its edges and binding, see photos. The inside is in very good condition, no marks or tears or missing pages.

Martin and Osa Johnson are from Lincoln, Kansas and Chanute, Kansas, respectively, they captured the public's imagination through their films and books of adventure in exotic, faraway lands.

Photographers, explorers, marketers, naturalists and authors, Martin and Osa studied the wildlife and peoples of East and Central Africa, the South Pacific Islands and British North Borneo. They explored then-unknown lands and brought back film footage and photographs, offering many Americans their first understanding of these distant lands.

I also have up for sale another first edition that is not the book club edition and is signed by Osa Johnson herself in ink.

Each First Edition has a different font use on the front cover, this book club edition has the word Adventure in italic font, my other book is an earlier 1940 first edition which has bold capital letters on the front cover's title. This signed copy has more illustration and a different illustration page, they both are fantastic reads and lovely for modern decor.
