1907 1ed Arctic Voyages Robert Peary Nearest the Pole Illustrated Eskimos MAP

Robert Peary was a 19th-century American explorer who made his fame on his numerous expeditions to the Arctic regions and claiming to have reached the North Pole. Prior to his 1909 expedition to the North Pole, Peary published an important report describing his Arctic voyages. In 'Nearest the Pole', Peary recounts his failed attempt to reach the North Pole; however, in 1909, Peary would redact many of his findings and assumptions made in this work when he did ultimately reach the North Pole.

This 1907 first edition book is one of the best accounts and descriptions of Ellesmere Island – beautifully illustrated with folding map of the expedition route.
