About This Item

London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1967. First edition of the author's account of circumnavigating the globe in his boat Gypsy IV. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated with photographs and maps. Boldly signed by Francis Chichester opposite the half-title page. Near fine in a near-fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket illustration based on a detail from Sir Francis Chichester Rounding the Horn by Norman Wilkinson. When 65-year-old Francis Chichester set sail on his solitary eastward journey around the world in 1966, many believed he wouldn't return alive. But when the old man returned nine months later, he had made history's fastest circumnavigation. Chosen by National Geographic to their list of 100 Great Adventure books.
