ARMITAGE, Albert A. Two Years in the Antarctic Being A Narrative Of The British National Antarctic Expedition

Edward Arnold, 1905.

First edition. 8vo. Publisher's green cloth, lettered gilt to spine and white to upper cover, with black vignette to upper cover. Photographic frontispiece and twenty-seven further photographs across fifteen plates. Fifty-four drawings in the text by Edward Wilson, folding colour map to rear. A very good copy indeed, the spine a little toned with wear at ends, but in all a clean and attractive copy of an uncommon heroic age account.

The account of the 1901-04 Discovery expedition by Scott's second in command. A lighter, more anecdotal and accessible account of the expedition than Scott's.
In his prefatory note, Fridtjof Nansen hopes that it "may inspire many a young man to noble deeds, whether the battle be fought in the bustle of great cities or in the silence of those icy regions where men toil on at the drag-ropes of a heavy sledge for the advancement of human knowledge."
