Book Description G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York, 1935. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. First Edition. Stated first edition. Beautifully signed by Byrd at half-title page: "R. E. Byrd". Blue full cloth boards, git embossed cover and spine titles, some edge wear, rub, dent. Cover features gilt border w/silhouette of plane from above. Deckled pages very good, no writing. Map endpapers of the operations map of the second Byrd Antarctica Expedition including Little America, Ross Ice Shelf, Marie Byrd Land, and the Rockefeller Plateau. Bind good; front, back hinges reinforced. Illustrated w/over fifty amazing photos, images and maps, etc. From the moment Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Jr. first left Anarctica, he knew he would return. Both the scope of the strange land and the uncharted scientific promise it held were too much to leave behind forever. Launched during the Great Depression amid great public skepticism, and with funding at its toughest to secure, this second Antarctic journey proved as daring, eventful, and inspiring as any Byrd embarked upon. Admiral Byrdís classic explorations by land, air, and sea transport us to the farthest reaches of the earth. As companions on Byrdís journeys, readers experience the polar landscape through Byrdís own struggles, doubts, revelations, and triumphs and share the excitement of these timeless adventures. Byrd proves to be an honest, sensitive, eloquent writer, humbled by the vast dangerous world of the Antarctic. The challenges of leading men, the difficulties of planning and preparation atop the great frozen mountains and ice pack are sympathetically described. Byrd was an American naval officer who specialized in feats of exploration. He was a recipient of the Medal of Honor, the highest honor for valor given by the United States, and was a pioneering American aviator, polar explorer, and organizer of polar logistics. Aircraft flights in which he served as a navigator and expedition leader crossed the Atlantic Ocean, a segment of the Arctic Ocean, and a segment of the Antarctic Plateau. Byrd's expeditions were the first to reach both the North and South Pole by air. Manufactured in the United States of America at the Van Rees Press. 405 pages. Insured post.
