The adventures of men who live and die in the polar regions.

First edition published 1949.
Published by Venturebooks Limited (Bath, England).

Hardcover. 209 pages.
Size (approx.): 126mm x 188mm x 17mm

Condition: Hardcover spine is absent. Cloth lining is intact so binding is preserved. Hardcover is shelf worn with large amount of shelf wear on edges and corner. Inside cover page has a dirty mark. Page edges have age browning and some bruising. Tear on page 27 (47mm length at bottom of page. Has ripped through last word on page “travelling” – although the tear has not removed the text and lies flat – page is still complete). Scratch & indentation on plate between pages 26 & 27 (does not extend to the photo just blank space at bottom right of page). Minor indent at bottom right corners of pages 24-26. All other pages appear to be in clean condition (uniform age browning). Overall condition would be considered ‘worn’ but perfectly readible. A rare book.
