This Norwegian-born explorer and geographer led nine Antarctic expeditions, the first in 1933, exploring over 3600 miles via dogsled; he proved that Antarctica is a continent; "Edith Ronne Land" he named after his wife, and the "Ronne Ice Shelf" is named after him; he recorded his exploits in his 1961 memoir "Arctic Command." Bold large signature in blue ballpoint, heavy stock 5" X 3" card, n.p., 1972 September 21. Below his handsome signature he inkstamped: "RONNE ANTARCTIC RESEARCH EXPEDITION / 1946 - 1948 / Captain Finn Ronne, USNR / Military Commander - Scientific Leader - Ellsworth Station, Edith Ronne Land / ANTARCTICA." Very picturesque. With original envelope. Also present is a printed postal card advertising his book "The Ronne Expedition to Antarctica.". Bookseller Inventory # 24357
