A presentation copy from the author, inscribed to the flyleaf: “General Hector with hearty thanks for all courtesy, Waldorf, Jan 30th 1925 Roald Amundsen”. Amundsen and his companions reached the South Pole on December 14, 1911, the first ever to do so. They spent three days at the Pole, taking observations and skiing round the area to ensure they had ‘staked their claim’, before returning to their ship Fram, which they reached on January 25, 1912. Amundsen subsequently led several further expeditions, the cost of which sent him increasingly into debt, and he was eventually bankrupted. To raise funds, Amundsen in the autumn of 1924 began a lecture tour, and while in New York stayed at the Waldorf Astoria, where he inscribed this copy of his South Pole narrative.

About this Item: Doubleday, Page & Co., Garden City, NY, 1927. Blue Cloth w/Gilt Titling. Condition: Very Good. First American Edition. In original blue cloth binding with minimal library identifiers, and from the collection of John Pearson, former member and one-time president of the Rowfant Club of Cleveland; Signed by the celebrated explorer and author for the Museum of The Peaceful Arts, Manhattan, which in 1927 was located in the old Scientific American Building. The Museum of the Peaceful Arts later became the Museum of Science and Industry. This is Amundsen's last book, and signed copies are extremely hard to find. Born in Borge, Ostfold, Norway, Roald Amundsen is said by many to be the greatest Polar explorer of the 20th century. In 1911, Roald Amundsen and his men were the first humans to reach the South Pole. A 1925 flight over the North Pole nearly met with disaster, but Amundsen prevailed. He and his men returned safely in their Dornier Do J Flying Boat N-25, after being on the ice for over three weeks. In 1926, Amundsen made a historic flight over the Arctic aboard the Norweigan airship Norge, becoming the first undisputed explorer to reach the North Pole. The previous claims of Cook, Peary and Byrd as being the first are all in dispute. On June 18, 1928, Amundsen, flying with a rescue party searching for the Italian airship, Italia, crashed somewhere over the Barents Sea. Amundsen and his aircraft have never been found. As recently as 2009, the Royal Norweigan Navy unsuccessfully searched for the wreckage using an unmanned submarine, Hugin 1000. This former Museum of Peaceful Arts library copy is thusly marked in a few places, including the call numbers on the spine, and lacks its dust jacket; The boards are lightly shelf worn, spine extremities and corners worn and/or bumped. Size: 8vo - Over 7 3/4" -9 3/4 " Tall. Inscribed & Signed by Author. Ex-Library, Hard Cover. Seller Inventory # IB169

About this Item: Lee Keedick, New York, 1913. First editions of Amundsen's memoir of the race to the South Pole. Octavo, original blue cloth, gilt titles to the spine and front panel, 100 plates, 5 maps (3 folding), and 16 text figures. Inscribed by the author in volume one on the front free endpaper, "Mr. & Mrs. Edwin O. Colter, with kindest regards. New York April 24th, 1918. Roald Amundsen." Both volumes are in near fine condition. Books signed and inscribed by Amundsen are rare. Scott's expedition to the South Pole was well-publicized, but his rival Roald Amundsen strategically kept the destination of his ship, the Fram, secret until the last moment. When the Norwegian finally revealed he was bound for the Pole, the backer of the British expedition opined that the Fram "has no more sailing qualities than a haystack. In any case, Scott will be on the ground and settled long before Amundsen turns up, if he ever does." There were crucial differences in approach from Scott's ill-fated expedition: dogs, rather than men, provided the raw power needed to pull equipment (they also eventually provided a food source) and the Norwegian crew knew to wear fur clothing rather than the wool used by the British team. Amundsen's party reached the Pole 34 days ahead of Scott. He wrote later in his diary, "The North Pole had attracted me since the days of my childhood, and so I found myself at the South Pole. Can anything more perverse be conceived?" (Huntford, 44). Seller Inventory # 65075

About this Item: 1913. Folding map to the rear of each volume, portrait frontispiece to each volume, with tissue guards, charts (1 folding), folding plan of 'The Fram', numerous illustrations. First American edition. 2 volumes. 8vo., blue cloth, lettered in gilt, ruled in blind, t.e.g., others untrimmed. New York, Lee Keedick. A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper 'Very sincerely yours Roald Amundsen Chicago Febr 15th 1913'. Amundsen, the first man to reach the South Pole, was a very experienced explorer, who originally intended to attempt the North Pole, but changed his mind on hearing of Peary's success. He set out for the south without telling his crew their destination until past Madeira, and famously beat Captain Scott to the South Pole by a month, unlike Scott living to tell the tale. While Scott used his expedition for exploration and scientific research, Amundsen had only success on his mind, greatly aided by his professionalism and experience. Amundsen continued his explorations in the Arctic becoming interested in flying and airship travel. He disappeared with no trace in 1928 while searching for the survivors of an airship belonging to his rival General Umberto Nobile, which had crashed in the Arctic. A very fine, unblemished copy, save one plate with a slight tear, not affecting the image. Seller Inventory # 221764

Collated Complete with: Sepia photographic frontispiece of Amundsen, 47 plate leaves, 4 maps including 3 coloured—two being fold-out, numerous text illustrations, publisher’s instructions for private binders at front of Part XXI. Original paper wrappers decorated with circular photograph set within a surround of penguins, the first two parts coloured silver and the remainder light blue-green as called for. All 40 parts complete and in Very Good to Good+ condition; pages untrimmed as issued. RARE original 40 parts First Issue of Amundsen’s classic account of his victorious expedition to the South Pole. —Rosove 8.A1.1 VERY RARE ORIGINAL PARTS ISSUE of Amundsen's classic account of his victorious expedition to the South Pole. Amundsen disembarked from the Fram at Buenos Aires in May 1912 to meet his sponsor Don Pedro Christophersen. He was invited to stay on one of Christophersen's estancias to write up his account of the expedition. The “Fram” returned home without him, leaving Buenos Aires on 7 June 1912, the second anniversary of their departure from Christiania. The sudden contrast was not lost on Amundsen: 'Here I am, sitting in the shade of palms, surrounded by the most wonderful vegetation, enjoying the most magnificent fruits, and writing -- the history of the South Pole. What an infinite distance seems to separate that region from these surroundings! And yet it is only four months since my gallant comrades and I reached the coveted spot . On December 14, 1911, five men stood at the southern end of our earth's axis, planted the Norwegian flag there, and named the region after the man for whom they would all gladly have offered their lives -- King Haakon VII. Thus the veil was torn aside for all time, and one of the greatest of our earth's secrets had ceased to exist. Since I was one of the five who, on that December afternoon, took part in this unveiling, it has fallen to my lot to write -- the history of the South Pole'. With: the original publisher’s decorative boards issued to bind the 40 parts. With: tipped in signature of Roald Amundsen Noticeably lacking the heroic tone of Scott's accounts, Amundsen's typically modest narrative of the Norwegian endeavor 'speaks of what is achieved, not of their hardships. Every word a manly one. That is the mark of the right man, quiet and strong' (Nansen, Introduction). Written before the outcome of Scott's Terra Nova Expedition was known, the differences between the two expeditions were already being outlined, and the battle-lines in what would become an ongoing debate already being drawn: 'For the victory is not due to the great inventions of the present day and the many new appliances of every kind. The means used are of immense antiquity, the same as were known to the nomad thousands of years ago, when he pushed forward across the snow-covered plains of Siberia and Northern Europe. But everything, great and small, was thoroughly thought out, and the plan was splendidly executed. It is the man that matters, here as everywhere. Let no one come and prate about luck and chance. Amundsen's luck is that of the strong man who looks ahead' (Nansen, ibid). This original parts issue of Sydpolen was followed by Jacob Dybwads' 2-volume edition and translated immediately into English, Danish, French, and German. Rosove lists only 2 copies of the original parts issue (one of which lacks the binding advertisement and instructions) calling it 'VERY SCARCE'. He lists no copies in public institutions. Most part issues were bound together by contemporary binders, the original printed wrappers being 'variably retained', and even these bound sets Rosove considers 'uncommon' (4 listings). No set of the original parts issue is recorded at auction by ABPC since 1975. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # MMCTTX.BG.1216
