About this Item: Chatto & Windus, 1932, 1932. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine blue boards with paper spine label, pages all clean, foxing to the fore-edge and to the first couple of prelim pages,nearly 80 plates, maps all present. Introduction by H.G.Watkins, leader of the expedition, Foreword by Admiral Sir William Goodenough, and additional chapters by J.M.Scott, Capt P.M.H.Lemon and Augustine Courtauld. Although Gino Watkins, a remarkable British adventurer, led this expedition, and was due to write its official account, he became preoccupied with other matters on his return to England, and it therefore fell to Chapman, whose first major expedition it was, to take over its preparation. Watkins provided an introduction only weeks before his untimely death a few weeks before publication. Chapman himself was on the cusp of an extraordinary career in adventure and exploration, and this was his first book, recounting the experiences of the group on this daring eponymous reconnaissance across Greenland.

About this Item: Chatto & Windus, 1932, 1932. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very good blue boards, spine label, clean pages, all maps present, 64 plates, very slight flecking to fore-edge, in a very good, very scarce cream dustjacket, some rubbing, some small repairs, a little spotting. Introduction by H.G.Watkins, additional chapters by J.M.Scott, Capt P.M.H.Lemon and Augustine Courtauld. Although Gino Watkins, a remarkable British adventurer, led this expedition, aged just 25, and was due to write its official account, he became preoccupied with other matters on his return to England and the task of preparing the book fell to Chapman. Watkins contributed the introduction just weeks before his untimely death, as referenced in the Foreword by Admiral Sir William Goodenough, President of the Royal Geographical Society. This was Chapman's first book and he would go on to become a distinguished adventurer and explorer in his own right. What makes this copy interesting is the author's signature on the fep, and then the pencilled inscription below it. At the top of the page, in brown ink, is written 'Xmas 1932 / from Daddy/ with a spot of love', and below that appears 'Yours sincerely/ F. Spencer Chapman'. The handwriting is very similar, and in identical brown ink. Chapman's signature, however, can only have been obtained in late 1933, because he was absent on an expedition (the one on which Watkins suddenly died) from mid-July 1932, returning over a year later. The pencilled inscription, in brackets, is ' If you get German Measles don't blame me! F.S.C'. It certainly appears to be in Chapman's hand, too, and it would seem to refer to the 'spot of love' just mentioned, but it's a mystery as to why he would write such a phrase over a year after the gift of the book from 'Daddy'. The dustjacket of this book is scarce, and so is Chapman's signature, and this inscription is intriguing. Seller Inventory # PSHB7401
