Detailed Product Description

New York, 1907, 1st US edition. 411 pp, 65 plates, foldout color map. Green cloth hardcover. Book is missing free FEP and has some shelf wear. Very Good. Also contains ephemera - old (1948) newspaper clippings regarding Peary's claim.

Classic of Polar literature; attempt at North Pole reaching 87.06' N. He returned via the West coast of Greenland, and across the North coast of Ellesmere Island. 

One of the great explorers who caused this period to be called the Heroic Age of Exploration. The Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration was an era in the exploration of the continent of Antarctica which began at the end of the 19th century, and ended after the First World War; the Shackleton–Rowett Expedition of 1921–1922 is often cited by historians as the dividing line between the "Heroic" and "Mechanical" ages. During this period the South Pole was first reached, and much of the continent's coastline was discovered and mapped, and significant areas of its interior were explored.
