About this Item: N.p., n.d. [1909], 1909. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Two preprinted sheets, each approx. 8 x 10", with original signatures in pen to rectos only, in very good condition. These sheets bear the signatures of Shackleton, Priestley, Wild, Joyce, Mawson, and all other members of the Shore Party from Shackleton's Nimrod expedition (the signatures of Mawson and Edgeworth David, the two Australians with the expedition, are on the second sheet). The sheets are unused examples of the signed leaves found in the Deluxe limited edition of Shackleton's Heart of the Antarctic (the pages are bound in at the beginning of the third volume, entitled The Antarctic Book). The existence of these unbound examples indicates that the deluxe version of Shackleton’s book did not sell out at the time of publication (300 copies were produced) - certainly, copies were still being advertised for sale as late as 1916. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 8389

Large octavos, 2 volumes, original blue cloth. Near fine in the rare original dust jackets with light wear and a few unnecessary tape repairs. Contains three partly colored folding maps & 2 panoramas on 1 folding sheet in rear pocket, 2 photogravure frontispieces and 12 color plates. Examples of Heart of the Antarctic in jacket are rare, with only one example of the American edition dust jackets appearing at auction in the last 50 years.

"A more interesting book of polar exploration . . . has yet to be written" (New York Times Book Review). Seller Inventory # 7290
