What Our Customers Say...
Author's Presentation Copy, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
This work looks at the discoveries and breakthroughs made through arctic exploration worldwide in the early 1900s.
Adolphus Washington Greely (1844-1935) was a polar explorer and US Army Officer. He commanded the Lady Franklin Bay Expedition in 1881, and was one of six survivors out of the original twenty-five; however, they were successful in discovering much of Greenland before falling victim to low supplies. Greely penned a number of works on his experiences in the Arctic after his retirement.
Illustrated with full plates and a map in full colour bound to the rear.
Inscribed by the author to the front endpaper. 'To Mr. S. J. Green, with good wishes, A. W. Greely.'
A fascinating insight into the development of Arctic exploration during the twentieth century, penned by an expert.
In a full cloth binding. Externally very smart, with just a touch of bumping to the head and tail of the spine and extremities. Author's inscription to the front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound; frontispiece is slightly disbound but firm. Pages are a touch age-toned, but otherwise clean.
