Second edition. Two volumes. Publisher's original green cloth illustrated and with titles in gilt, red and white to the upper board and spine. All edges marbled. Illustrated with over 200 illustrations and folding map in back of volume one. An attractive very good or better set, the bindings firm with a little bumping at the spine tips and slightly rolled spines. The contents, with a contemporary owner's name written in gothic calligraphy to the front endpaper of each volume, and with very occasional spotting, are otherwise clean throughout. The map at the rear of volume one has a closed tear without loss.
An account of the Norwegian explorer's 1893-96 Fram expedition to the North Pole, a classic work of polar exploration, superbly illustrated.
