The Polar World

The Arctic and Antarctic regions

HARTWIG, Dr G.

HARTWIG, Dr G. The Polar World The Arctic and Antarctic regions

Longmans, 1892.

New edition. 8vo. Original green cloth, with blind stamped decoration to the upper panel and gilt titling to the spine. Eight chromolithograph plates and copious wood engraving in the text of polar natural history. Two folding colour maps each of the North and South polar regions. A very good copy indeed, with a little wear to the base of the rear joint and some light foxing internally.

'The Polar World' was a popular natural history of the Polar regions and its explorers, its object "to describe the Polar World in its principle natural features, to point out the influence of its long winter-night and fleeting summer on the development of vegetable and animal existence, and finally to picture man waging the battle of life against the dreadful climate of the high latitudes of our globe either as the inhabitant of their gloomy solitudes, or as the bold investigator of their mysteries."
