HAYES, J. Gordon Robert Edwin Peary A Record Of His Explorations 1886-1909

Grant Richards & Humphrey Toulmin, 1929.

First edition. 8vo. Original blue cloth, lettered gilt, in the printed dustwrapper. Photographic frontispiece and seven further photographic plates. Four folding maps in rear pocket. A near fine copy in the rare original dustwrapper, which is in very good condition, tanned to the spine and with some light chipping to spine ends.

A critique of Peary's discoveries and scientific work in the Arctic, of particular interest is his analysis of Peary's claimed achievement of the North Pole: "The fact that his claim to have reached the North Pole was accepted, apparently without examination, by many learned institutions, makes it essential for our work to be done as thoroughly as possible."

PROVENANCE: From the travel library of Beekman Pool, author of "Polar Extremes: The World of Lincoln Ellsworth," his bookplate to pastedown.
