First American Edition of this gripping account of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition of 1911-14 led by Sir Douglas Mawson to King George V Land and Adelie Land, the almost entirely unexplored section of the Antarctic continent immediately south of Australia. In addition to carrying out geographical exploration and scientific studies, the expedition was to visit the South Magnetic Pole. On one excursion in 1912 Mawson lost one of his two companions, Ninnis, down a crevice together with six of their best dogs, most of their food rations, and some of their best supplies. Forced to use their remaining dogs as food, they began to suffer from symptoms brought on by ingesting husky liver containing extremely high levels of Vitamin A. Mertz finally succumbed following bouts of irrationality and raging. Mawson managed escape being swallowed up by a crevice himself and made it back to their base alone just a few hours after their ship had left. He and six men who had stayed behind to wait for him were forced to spend another winter until December of 1913. In 1916 the American Geographical Society awarded Mawson the David Livingstone Centenary Medal. Spence 773. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The Ksado photographs are a testament to the depth of Compostelana spirituality in the area, which is also the focus of modern-day pilgrimages.

        Pictorial Mileage Road Book, California Edition

      Richmond, CA: Motogram Company, 1915. Soft cover. Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. A fascinating look into early automobile culture. This motorist's guide of California consists of small (1 1/4" x 13/16") photographs that show the road at every mile as taken through the windshield. Road conditions are described as well. The company boasts that their maps, which have been custom produced, "show just what the motorist needs, and no more." If "what the motorist needs" is indeed maps that consist merely of lines that go from one dot to another with little geographic context. Although it is easy to poke fun of these simple designs, how different are they from today's GPS navigation systems that merely bark out directions? Flexible board covers rubbed on edges, corners creased. A few pages have tears and stains; at least one motorist found this a useful tool.
