The South Pole An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram", 1910-1912
New York: Lee Keedick, 1913. First American edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. An inscribed copy, signed in full, this is also an unopened copy of an important Antarctic book. The inscription reads, "Mr. & Mrs. Edwin O. Colter, with kindest regards. New York April 24th, 1918. Roald Amundsen". 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. Translated from the Norwegian by A. G. Chater. 2 volumes, 8vo: 392pp. (&) 449pp., 100 plates, 5 maps (3 folding), and 16 text figures; teg. Spence # 18; Rosove 9B2a, with the folding plate of the Fram at the end of Appendix 1. Bright dark blue gilt stamped cloth, the gilt not faded, a few short diagonal marks at lower edge of spine Volume I, otherwise extremely bright and clean, with a wonderful autograph by the author.
