KNOX-JOHNSTON, Robin. A World of my Own. The single-handed, non-stop circumnavigation of the world in Suhaili. London, Cassell, [1969].

8vo. Original boards with illustrated dust-wrappers (price-clipped) map endpapers; pp. ix, 240, plates after photographs; near-fine.
First edition, signed by the author on title-page. The author was the first person ever to sail solo and non-stop around the world, in his Indian hand-built wooden boat Suhaili. This was a new record after Sir Francis Chichester had sailed single-handedly round the world with one stop for re-fitting in Australia.
