Amundsen, Roald. The South Pole. An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram", 1910-1912. Trans. from the Norwegian by A.G. Chater. Keedick, NY 1913, 1st US edition. Overall a nice copy of an important book - one of the scarcer Antarctic titles. Amundsen was the first to reach the South Pole. He sensibly chose dogs over ponies, and reached the Pole in 99 days. 2 vols., 392 pp. (&) 450 pp., 100 plates, 5 maps (3 folding), and 16 text figures. Spence # 18; Rosove 9B2a, with the folding plate of the Fram at the end of Appendix 1. Bright dark blue gilt stamped cloth, the spine gilt slt. toned, lt. discoloration lower front & back cover vol. 1 which is barely noticeable. Otherwise a very nice copy.
