Description:

First edition. With and introduction by Hugh Robert Mill, the most important biographer of Sir Ernest Shackleton. Illustrated with 31 photographs by H.G. Ponting and others, and with 11 charts and diagrams. 8vo, publisher’s original green cloth, lettered in gilt and ruled in blind on both the spine and the upper cover. 318pp, 2 ads. A bright and fine copy, internally essentially pristine, the binding sturdy with strong hinges, the cloth just discolored a bit on the covers by time. FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK IN A PLEASING STATE. Hayes states in his preface that at the time of this book’s publication, all the previous works on Antarctic exploration (however important and seminal) were out of date, so this work was intended to record "simply as history, the progress of Antarctic discovery which has abounded in epic incidents during the last twenty-five years. Included is an introduction by Hugh Robert Mill. "The purpose of this book is to present a faithful record of events unencumbered by technicalities. The last chapter alone is intended for students, who may well begin with a reference to Appendix I. By this arrangement the lover of adventure and the more serious student will alike find their needs met." [preface]. Bookseller Inventory #
