Antarctic Adventure. Scott's Northern Party.

London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1914. First edition. A very good copy of a difficult book to find- many copies were destroyed during a fire at the publisher's warehouse. Forced to winter over when the Terra Nova failed to pick them up, the party eventually trekked over 230 miles of sea ice to Cape Evans.

Royal 8vo, 382 pp, 90 pp ills., 3 folding maps. Original blue & silver gilt pictorial cloth with the picture of the Antarctic camp on the front cover, and of 3 men on the spine. A very bright copy, much more so than usual. The blue cloth at spine slightly darker than the cover, but still exceptionally bright. Very light scattered foxing in blank margins. Overall a very bright copy, very good + condition. Spence 939. Rosove 256.A1. Item #23726

Price: $1,250.00
