PEARY, Robert E. Northward Over the Great Ice A Narrative Of Life And Work Along The Shores And Upon The Interior Ice-Cap Of Northern Greenland In The Years 1886 and 1891-1897

Methuen, 1898.

First English edition. Two volumes. 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth, lettered gilt to spine. Upper cover lettered gilt, with silver vignette. Top edge gilt, other uncut. In all, over eight hundred illustrations across the two volumes. Including portrait frontispieces to each volume, numerous charts, maps, and photographic reproductions, one folding panorama, and one folding map. A bright set in near fine condition. Early ownership inscription to the front free endpaper of each volume.

These volumes cover the first three of Peary's eight expeditions to Greenland and towards the North Pole... each expedition and each of Peary's books represented unique contributions to Arctic exploration, while bringing Peary closer to his goal of glory for the United States and fame for himself. The proof of the insularity of Greenland, the geographical frontiers covered, the successive records of Northern latitude... were estimable feats (Books On Ice).
