PEARY, Robert E. Nearest the Pole A Narrative Of The Polar Expedition Of The Peary Arctic Club In The S. S. Roosevelt, 1905-1906.

Doubleday, Page and Company, 1907.

First edition. 8vo. Publisher's green cloth, lettered gilt. Gilt device to upper cover. Colour frontispiece, ninety-five photographs and two folding maps bound at rear. A very good copy indeed. Bright and clean with slight rubbing to the spine ends. Gift inscriptions to front endpaper.

The second book in Peary's trilogy narrating his northern explorations of Greenland and assaults on the North Pole. Though bolstered by the finances of the Peary Arctic Club, the enthusiasm of President Roosevelt and the provision of a specially designed ship based on the Fram, Peary was unsuccessful in reaching the pole. He did make it at least as far as 84°30'N, though whether he did achieve a new farthest north is disputed.
