Detailed Product Description
New York, W. W. Norton, 1932, 1st US edition. 372 pp, b/w photos and illustrations, bibliography, index. Original Ex Lib blue cloth hardcover with sunned spine stamped in blue and gilt and the usual library marks, wear and card pocket. No dust jacket. Very Good.

Fridtjof Nansen (10 October 1861 to 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 8614 feet 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.
