Detailed Product Description
DC, National Geographic Society, October 1909. Volume XX No. 10. This is the first issue of National Geographic Magazine to report on the so-called "Discovery of the North Pole." The Cook article is 4 pages, the Peary is 18 pages and has 11 photos, but they are all of Eskimos and scenery and were taken before the dash to the pole. The entire issue is present, and condition is Near Fine, with no significant flaws of any kind.

Both Cook and Peary reported their reaching the North Pole almost simultaneously, even though Cook said he reached the Pole in April 1908, and Peary a year later in 1909. This was caused by Cook having to spend a second winter in the Arctic. Both men are now believed to have been untruthful, and that neither reached the North Pole, although Peary did get much closer. If you are fascinated by this amazing saga, this magazine deserves a place on your shelf next to the much more elaborate books that appeared later.

There is a map on page 916 that traces their routes and that of other explorers. We have enlarged the map on our scanner, and adjusted the sharpness and contrast so it is easier to read. It is reproduced below for your pleasure.
