    Beschreibung: Soft cover. Zustand: Very Good. 1st Edition. Kristiania: Jacob Dybwads, [May-September] 1912. 40 parts, First Edition, First Printing. 8vo. Collated Complete with: Sepia photographic frontispiece of Amundsen, 47 plate leaves, 4 maps including 3 coloured two being fold-out, numerous text illustrations, publisher s instructions for private binders at front of Part XXI. Original paper wrappers decorated with circular photograph set within a surround of penguins, the first two parts coloured silver and the remainder light blue-green as called for. All 40 parts complete and in Very Good to Good+ condition; pages untrimmed as issued. RARE original 40 parts First Issue of Amundsen s classic account of his victorious expedition to the South Pole. Rosove 8.A1.1 VERY SCARCE ORIGINAL PARTS ISSUE of Amundsen's classic account of his victorious expedition to the South Pole. Amundsen disembarked from the Fram at Buenos Aires in May 1912 to meet his sponsor Don Pedro Christophersen. He was invited to stay on one of Christophersen's estancias to write up his account of the expedition. The Fram returned home without him, leaving Buenos Aires on 7 June 1912, the second anniversary of their departure from Christiania. The sudden contrast was not lost on Amundsen: 'Here I am, sitting in the shade of palms, surrounded by the most wonderful vegetation, enjoying the most magnificent fruits, and writing -- the history of the South Pole. What an infinite distance seems to separate that region from these surroundings! And yet it is only four months since my gallant comrades and I reached the coveted spot . On December 14, 1911, five men stood at the southern end of our earth's axis, planted the Norwegian flag there, and named the region after the man for whom they would all gladly have offered their lives -- King Haakon VII. Thus the veil was torn aside for all time, and one of the greatest of our earth's secrets had ceased to exist. Since I was one of the five who, on that December afternoon, took part in this unveiling, it has fallen to my lot to write -- the history of the South Pole'. With: the original publisher s decorative boards issued to bind the 40 parts. With: tipped in signature of Roald Amundsen Noticeably lacking the heroic tone of Scott's accounts, Amundsen's typically modest narrative of the Norwegian endeavor 'speaks of what is achieved, not of their hardships. Every word a manly one. That is the mark of the right man, quiet and strong' (Nansen, Introduction). Written before the outcome of Scott's Terra Nova Expedition was known, the differences between the two expeditions were already being outlined, and the battle-lines in what would become an ongoing debate already being drawn: 'For the victory is not due to the great inventions of the present day and the many new appliances of every kind. The means used are of immense antiquity, the same as were known to the nomad thousands of years ago, when he pushed forward across the snow-covered plains of Siberia and Northern Europe. But everything, great and small, was thoroughly thought out, and the plan was splendidly executed. It is the man that matters, here as everywhere. Let no one come and prate about luck and chance. Amundsen's luck is that of the strong man who looks ahead' (Nansen, ibid). This original parts issue of Sydpolen was followed by Jacob Dybwads' 2-volume edition and translated immediately into English, Danish, French, and German. Rosove lists only 2 copies of the original parts issue (one of which lacks the binding advertisement and instructions) calling it 'VERY SCARCE'. He lists no copies in public institutions. Most part issues were bound together by contemporary binders, the original printed wrappers being 'variably retained', and even these bound sets Rosove considers 'uncommon' (4 listings). No set of the original parts issue is recorded at auction by ABPC since 1975. Signed by Author(s). Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers MMCTTX.BG.1216

    Beschreibung: First editions of Amundsen's memoir of the race to the South Pole. Octavo, original blue cloth, gilt titles to the spine and front panel, 100 plates, 5 maps (3 folding), and 16 text figures. Inscribed by the author in volume one on the front free endpaper, "Mr. & Mrs. Edwin O. Colter, with kindest regards. New York April 24th, 1918. Roald Amundsen." Both volumes are in near fine condition. Books signed and inscribed by Amundsen are rare. Scott's expedition to the South Pole was well-publicized, but his rival Roald Amundsen strategically kept the destination of his ship, the Fram, secret until the last moment. When the Norwegian finally revealed he was bound for the Pole, the backer of the British expedition opined that the Fram "has no more sailing qualities than a haystack. In any case, Scott will be on the ground and settled long before Amundsen turns up, if he ever does." There were crucial differences in approach from Scott's ill-fated expedition: dogs, rather than men, provided the raw power needed to pull equipment (they also eventually provided a food source) and the Norwegian crew knew to wear fur clothing rather than the wool used by the British team. Amundsen's party reached the Pole 34 days ahead of Scott. He wrote later in his diary, "The North Pole had attracted me since the days of my childhood, and so I found myself at the South Pole. Can anything more perverse be conceived?" (Huntford, 44). Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 65075

    Beschreibung: Zustand: very good. 1st UK Edition. xxxv, 392; x449pp. Octavo, Original red decorated cloth. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Numerous photo plates, maps, some folding. Minor wear and a bit of spotting on the endpapers. Old library stamp, marked withdrawn on the front endpaper of each volume, otherwise a clean attractive copy. Both volumes signed and dated by Victor Campbell on the front paste downs. Spence 16. Taurus Collection 71, Rosove 9.A1 First edition in English, published the year before the New York edition and quite scarce. Amundsen had originally planned an expedition to repeat Nansen's drift with the Fram through the Arctic Ocean, and presumably to try for the north pole, but support for the project fell with the announcement of Cook's & Peary's accomplishments. He then turned toward the south, even though Scott's plans to attempt the south pole were well known, and was severely criticized (mostly in Great Britain) for competing with Scott. The two polar journeys were in marked contrast, and form part of one of the greatest dramas of exploration - Amundsen made the trip with dogs and skis, and with little difficulty, reaching the pole a month before Scott's party; Scott and four others reached the pole, but died on the return, just short of safety, after an heroic but ill-planned trip, dragging their own sleds. This set bears the ownership and annotations of Lieut. Victor Campbell, who was in charge of the Northern party. See colour illustration. Included is a copy of the Wicked Mate, the Antarctic Diary of Victor Campbell edited by H.G.R. King. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 125263

In 1926, he became the first explorer to lead an air expedition to the North Pole, making him the first person, without dispute, to reach both poles. He is also known for leading the first expedition to traverse the Northwest Passage (1903-06) in the Arctic.

    Beschreibung: First editions of Amundsen's memoir of the race to the South Pole. Two handsome and sturdy volumes, bound in the original blue cloth with bright gilt titles on the front boards and on the spines. With 100 plates, 5 maps (3 folding), and 16 text figures.With Amundsen's signed presentation in volume one on the front free endpaper, "Konsul H. Bendeke from Roald Amundsen. Grand Forks, 17th Mai, 1913." With a letter of provenance from Mr. Bendeke's great grandson. With "H. Bendeke" written in blue ink at the top of the front endpaper in volume 1. Both volumes are very clean and tight and in near-fine condition. A splendid set, handsomely inscribed by the legendary Norwegian polar explorer who was the first explorer to reach the South Pole and the first to navigate the Northwest Passage. Roald Engelbregt Gravning Amundsen. ( 1872 1928) was a Norwegian explorer of polar regions. He was a key figure of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. Born in Borge, Østfold, Norway, Amundsen began his career as a polar explorer as first mate on Adrien de Gerlache's Belgian Antarctic Expedition of 1897 1899. From 1903 to 1906, he led the first expedition to successfully traverse the Northwest Passage on the sloop Gjøa. In 1909, Amundsen began planning for a South Pole expedition. He left Norway in June 1910 on the ship Fram and reached Antarctica in January 1911. His party established a camp at the Bay of Whales and a series of supply depots on the Barrier (now known as the Ross Ice Shelf) before setting out for the pole in October. The party of five, led by Amundsen, became the first to successfully reach the South Pole on 14 December 1911.Following a failed attempt in 1918 to reach the North Pole by traversing the Northeast Passage on the ship Maud, Amundsen began planning for an aerial expedition instead. On 12 May 1926, Amundsen and 15 other men in the airship Norge became the first explorers verified to have reached the North Pole.[4][5] Amundsen disappeared in June 1928 while flying on a rescue mission for the airship Italia in the Arctic. The search for his remains, which have not been found, was called off in September of that year. (Wikipedia) First Edition with matching dates of 1913 on the title and copyright pages. And with the TROW Press colophon on the copyright page. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 1059

    Beschreibung: First edition in German, published in the same year as the Norwegian and English editions, a really superior copy in the highly attractive original cloth bindings and decidedly uncommon dust jackets. "Amundsen's modest account of his extraordinary South Pole exploit is a classic of exploration literature" (Rosove). "An account of Amundsen's legendary dash to the Pole, in which he gained priority over Robert Falcon Scott's British Expedition by a month His success over Scott was due to highly disciplined dogsled teams, more accomplished skiers, a shorter distance to the Pole, better clothing and equipment, well-planned supply depots en route, including more nutritious food with plenty of B vitamins, fortunate weather, and a modicum of luck" (Books on Ice). This set with an appealing provenance: volume I bearing on the half-title verso an anonymous lengthy presentation inscription in German to the distinguished Italian surgeon Bartolo Nigrisoli (1858-1948), hoping that the books will find a place in his "Eis Bibliothek" (ice library) and that "You yourself will find a reflection of your own character in Roald Amundsen!" Nigrisoli was a popular doctor and held the chair of clinical surgery at the University of Bologna; he served with distinction, initially with the Red Cross, during the First World War and has streets in Ravenna and Imola named after him. Rosove 8.B3 note. 2 volumes, octavo. Original pale grey pictorial cloth, dark grey endpapers and top edges. With dust jackets. 8 colour plates, 4 maps (3 of them folding), numerous plates and illustrations in the text. Slight fraying of the jackets, a few nicks and chips with minimal loss, back panel of vol. I a little creased, the bindings sharp and bright. An excellent set. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 144380

(cgc) Cooke p299. A.B. 402. Narrative of the first expedition to navigate the Northwest Passage in a single vessel, the expedition that brought Amundsen to prominence as a polar explorer. In 1901 he gave up the idea of medicine and decided to become an explorer. After several months in Hamburg studying the science of terrestrial magnetism, he purchased an old ship, the Gjoa, 70ft long and thirty years old. He put in a 14 hp engine; then, with six dogs and enough provisions on board, he got under way with a crew of six on 17 June, 1903. His aim was to find the North-West Passage which had been sought in vain since the time of John Cabot. In September, he crossed Peel Sound and anchored in a sheltered bay on King William Island. Eskimos came up to him who knew of the existence of white men by oral tradition only. Seventy-two years earlier, James Ross, had sailed in these regions with Parry. Amundsen bought tooth and bone necklaces and clothes which later enriched the Oslo museum. He also spent two winters learning about the Eskimo way of life. In Oct. 1905, he set out again for the North-West Passage. On August 30th the Gjoa entered the Nome roadstead. For the first time in world history a ship sailing north of America had found a way from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 39024

ONE OF THE SCARCEST AND MOST IMPORTANT POLAR TITLES, ESPECIALLY THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Norwegian captain Roald Amundsen had initially intended make an expedition to the Arctic, but changed his plans at the last moment and announced he would try for the South Pole instead. His explanation to the public was that if he could beat the English and Japanese expeditions to the Pole then he could secure success and funds for his extensive Arctic expedition, and also snatch the prize for his own country. So , unbeknownst to Scott, Amundsen sailed southward in the Fram to the Bay of Whales that would afford his expedition both the shortest route to the Pole and a route that would not overlap with either the Japanese or the English expeditions. From start to finish, Amundsens expedition ran like clockwork. He carefully planned every moment of the trip, using his experience in the Arctic and his extensive knowledge of dog-teams to help him through. His team was entirely Norwegian, accustomed to a harsh and cold climate, and were excellent ski-runners. In addition, Amundsen traveled light; he brought five men and fifty dogs on his expedition so that the latter could eventually serve as food for the former. Part of what doomed Scotts party was the fact that he favored men and ponies over dogs, bringing twelve men, eight ponies, and only twenty-six dogs. Amundsens party remained in excellent health and always had enough to eat from their plentiful provisions at their well-stocked supply depots. They also supplemented their food stores with a great seal hunt just before the winter, after which 120,000 lb. of fresh seal meat were added to their stores, which helped protect them against scurvy. Unlike Scotts party, Amundsens party were also fortunate enough to have favorable weather conditions on their side, so that they were able to reach the Pole using their supply depots and dog sleds in just 99 days, a distance of 1860 miles, covering an astonishing average of 19 miles a day over frozen and difficult ground. Their journey was truly an extraordinary accomplishment, and Amundsens account of it is no less riveting. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 000632
