Detailed Product Description
London, Methuen, 1937, 1st UK edition. 365 pp, 48 b/w plates, 22 maps, diagrams. Large format navy cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Near Fine. 

Narrative of an expedition of ten members under A. R. Glen to North-East Land, Svalbard, [Northeast Land, a region of Spitsbergen], July 1935-1936,  to investigate weather conditions on inland ice, also problems connected with the age, thickness and physical condition of the icecap.  

Though the expedition carried out a great deal of important scientific research the most interesting aspect to modern readers is likely to be in the detailed, and well illustrated, accounts of living within the ice-cap station, essentially a little city carved beneath the ancient ice. It in many ways resembled a bunker or fallout shelter more then a scientific outpost. 

The is a large and heavy book, so extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.
