About this Item

First edition. A copy WITH WONDERFUL ASSOCIATION MATERIAL. At the front of the book is tipped in an original photograph of Ootah, the Eskimo who had accompanied Peary on his 1906 travels nearest the pole and had reached the pole with Peary on the expedition which is recorded in this volume. Peary had spent 30 hours at the North Pole accompanied by Ootah and a few other Eskimos. With 8 full-page color illustrations, 100 black and white illustrations from photos, and a large folding color map at the rear. Large 8vo, publisher's original navy blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and upper cover which also features a pictorial vignette in gilt, white, blue, gray and red, t.e.g. xxxii, 373 pp. A handsome copy, the interior very fresh and clean, the cloth bright and clean and well preserved. A very interesting 1953 owner's notation on the front blank regarding an original photograph tipped in of Ootah, the Eskimo who accompanied Peary on his travels to the North Pole. A HANDSOME COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION, WITH FINE ASSOCIATION MATERIAL. Peary, of course, was the first to reach the North Pole, and this is the account of his expedition. Along with Amundsen's THE SOUTH POLE, this work represents the culmination of centuries of man's attempt to reach, literally, the ends of the earth. "Commander Peary has made all dwellers in the civilized world his debtors; but, above all, we, his fellow Americans, are his debtors" (-from the introduction by Roosevelt).
