About this Item

First Edition, Cadet Edition. Illustrated throughout with a map and pictures from photographs. 8vo, publisher's original blue cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, the dustjacket printed and pictorially illustrated in colours. 192 pp. A very fine copy, the dustjacket very well preserved and with only a bit of rubbing from shelving and time, a chip to the rear portion. FIRST EDITION, THE CADET EDITION of this fine work on Antarctica. Anderson sailed from Hope Bay in October, 1954 as leader of a small twelve-man base whose objectives were the exploration and survey on one of the least known sectors of Antarctica. Topographical research was undertaken, as well as research into the effects of intense cold on the human mind and body. There was also research directed to understanding how the huskies could be better conditioned for the prolonged journeys. Thousands of meteorological observations were made at base and in the field. The work has always been touted as a guide, with its humanity and humour as a fine book and a testament to those who confront the physical and mental strains constant in the Antarctic. Anderson was a leader of British, American and Korean guerilla forces operating in North Korea during the war and was awarded a bar to his M.C. the M.B.E. and the U.S. Legion of Merit.
