First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated
Complete in two volumes. In German Blackletter script. With a beautiful full-colour frontispiece to each volume, as well as a great many in-text maps and drawings and a two colour fold-out map to volume II. Fridtjof Nansen (10 October 1861 – 13 May 1930) was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. In his youth a champion skier and ice skater, he led the team that made the first crossing of the Greenland interior in 1888, and won international fame after reaching a record northern latitude of 86°14' during his North Pole expedition of 1893–96. Although he retired from exploration after his return to Norway, his techniques of polar travel and his innovations in equipment and clothing influenced a generation of subsequent Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. With a previous owner's ink inscription to the front free endpaper of both volumes, dated December 1922.
In pictorial cloth covered bindings. Externally, generally smart with slight shelfwear and sunning to spines and slight straining to one front hinge. Internally, firmly bound, bright and clean. Very slight curling to the tail of the fold-out map.
