Detailed Product Description
New York, G. P. Putnam Son, 1926, 1st edition. 412 pp, 20 b/w photos, mapped end papers. Blue cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Near Fine. 

Illustrated with black and white photographs, including one picturing Ernest Shackleton, Robert Peary, and Roald Amundsen. A biography of Admiral Robert E. Peary, one of several arctic adventurers during the late 19th and early 20th century. Peary was considered for about 80 years (1909-1989) to be the first to reach the North Pole (his claim was later disproved by the leader of a British expedition now widely accepted as the first to actually reach it).
