1980 - A Falcon Flies

William Heinemann published the first British edition, and Doubleday published the first American edition under the title: FLIGHT OF THE FALCON.

William Heinemann reprinted A FALCON FLIES a few times: in 1980 (4 times in the same year as the first printing), 1982, and 1989 for a Uniform Edition.

I own an exceedingly rare Uncorrected Proof copy

The book is shorter than the DJ because it is just the textblock bound in wrappers instead of boards.

I own 3 copies of the first printing of the British first edition. Wilbur signed all 3 of my copies.

The very copy that Wilbur gifted to his mother-in-law is now in my collection. "Mom" is Danielle's mother.

I have not seen another signed copy where Wilbur included a date, making the copy below even more rare.

Another signature within one of my copies
