Original dark blue cloth, lettered in red-orange on the spine within red-orange rules; pp. xiv, 283, [6, advertisements]; photogravure portrait frontispiece with tissue guard, 3 folding maps and folding plan; light bubbling to upper quarter of spine (as noted by Rosove to be frequently the case), uncut edges with light foxing, as well as offsetting from browned fly-leaves to a few adjacent pages (as usual), otherwise an internally clean and fresh copy; neat contemporary ownership inscription on front paste-down.
First edition, second impression (in the same month as the first, November, 1921) of a classic of Antarctic exploration, very rare, a good copy.
