Detailed Product Description
London, William Heinemann, 1911, 1st English edition. 2 volumes: xi+384 pp and v+416 pp, tipped in color frontispieces and numerous b/w text illustrations. Original blue cloth stamped in gilt, without dust jackets. Some spotting to end papers and edges and former owners' bookplates. Near Fine overall. A very nice set of books.

This is a heavy two volume set. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.

Published at the behest of the Royal Geographical Society and in the same year as the Norwegian original, the book comprises a historical survey of the exploration of the Arctic from classical antiquity to Cabot and the Portuguese discoveries in the north-west, and includes an account of the Viking discovery of America. Nansen was known for his exploration of Greenland and setting a record in 1896 for the northern most voyage. He was later surpassed by Robert Peary.
