Fram Over Polhavet - 1st Norwegian Edition - First Volume Only

£39.99

Product description

A First Norwegian Edition of Volume I of Fram Over Polhavet by explorer, diplomat, scientist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Fritdtjof Nansen. In Norwegian. Published by H. Aschehoug & Co.s Forlag, Kristiania, in 1897.

A first-hand account of the explorer's expedition to reach the North Pole by using the natural drift of the polar ice with the currents. He set sail from Norway in 1893, in a vessel specially designed to withstand the grip of packing ice, and made the homeward voyage in September 1896, after having reached the farthest point north attained by man.

In good condition for its age, with the original blue-green cloth, and gilt lettering and decoration to the front cover and spine. There is some shelf wear, and scratches to the front and rear covers, as well as foxing. The two pull-out maps at the back of the book have retained their colour, although there is a tear to the map of Franz Joseph's Land (see photo).

A clean and intact copy, beautifully illustrated with photographs and the author's own sketches.
