Lost at Sea at Age 39

HALLIBURTON, Richard
(1900-1939). Adventurer, travel writer, explorer. Known for swimming the Panama Canal, paying the lowest toll in the canal’s history, 36 cents.  His Flying Carpet tour took 18 months circumnavigating the globe covered 33,600 miles visiting 34 countries. Some of his books “New World’s To Conquer” and “Richard Halliburton’s Book of Marvels” are fascinating reading.  His last venture was attempting to cross the Pacific in a Chinese junk from Hong Kong to San Francisco.  In bad weather, the ship apparently sunk and Halliburton was lost at sea. His empty grave has a stone marker in Memphis, Tennessee which reads “Richard Halliburton, Lost at Sea”. Very scarce photo from his world wide tour measures appx. 5”x7” of his plane “The Flying Carpet” in Agra, India above the Taj Mahal.  Inscribed and signed: “Howard! - How I keep from growing old- Dick Halliburton, The Flying Carpet, Agra 1932”. One minor crease and light browning around the two top corners otherwise a good example of a scarce autograph.......................... $175.00
