About this Item: G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York, 1938. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Harrison, Richard E. (Decorations) (illustrator). First Edition. 1938 at title and copyright dates; no other dates, indications. Navy cloth boards, blue metallic cover and spine titles, light shelf wear. Deckled pages very good, clean; lt. fox at endps. Antiquarian name pencilled inside cover. Bind fine;hinges intact. Illustrated throughout w/intriguing header and tailpiece decoration by Richard Harrison. Sharp, near fine first printing. When Admiral Richard E. Byrd set out on his second Antarctic expedition in 1934, he was already an international hero for having piloted the first flights over the North and South Poles. His plan for this latest adventure was to spend six months alone near the bottom of the world, gathering weather data and indulging his desire "to taste peace and quiet long enough to know how good they really are." But early on things went terribly wrong. Isolated in the pervasive polar night with no hope of release until spring, Byrd began suffering inexplicable symptoms of mental and physical illness. By the time he discovered that carbon monoxide from a defective stovepipe was poisoning him, Byrd was already engaged in a monumental struggle to save his life and preserve his sanity. When Alone was first published in 1938, it became an enormous bestseller. This book keeps alive Byrd s unforgettable narrative for generations of readers. 296 pages. Insured post. Size: 8vo - over 7 - 9" Tall. Seller Inventory # 019510

B&W Photographs; This book is in Near Fine to Fine condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright There is a neatly scribed previous owner's name and city on the front pastedown page (the owner was possibly a professor at Stanford University in the 1920's). Included are 55 pages of plates of black and white photographs, and 4 maps 2 of which are folding maps. The dust jacket is clean and bright with the exception of several small edge nicks and tears, especially to the top spine end, along with some rubbing to the flap joints and some ink spots daubed onto the edge wear at the top spine end (possibly by an amateur dust jacket repair artist). There are also several very small pieces of tape that have been adhered to the reverse of the dust jacket at the top spine end by the previous owner. "If only by virtue of his having stood over both Poles, Admiral Byrd stands apart from all living men. Only one other man of the thousands who strived attained this remote distinction - Amundsen, his friend; and Amundsen is dead. Byrd, now ony 41, has capped a lifetime of amazingly productive geographical research by flying over the South Pole.". Seller Inventory # 27094
