Publisher's navy cloth, gilt titles and spine rule, top page edges gilt, single rule in blind on the front boards. Maps present at the rear of each volume. Amundsen's party, aboard the ship "Fram," reached the South Pole more than a month ahead of British Capt. Robert F. Scott and his crew, thanks to the help of sled dogs, which eventually provided a food source, and fur clothing instead of the wool worn by Scott's team. About Fine, with no dust jackets (presumed as issued). A hint of rubbing at the extremities, boards very slightly bowed. A superb example, housed in a custom clamshell box.
