About This Item

London: Ward, Lock and Co Limited. 1899, 1st English Translation. 8vo – 21cm., [viii], 351pp., 8pp (publisher's advertisements). Publisher's dark-green gilt decorated cloth with bright gilt on cover and spine. Green tinted full-page plates with black-and-white photographic plates in text, frontispiece portrait of Lt. Johansen with original tissue guard. A very good copy in its original state with tight hinges and very clean and crisp pages with no foxing, folds or tears, and no prior ownership markings; pages uncut. Arctic Bibliography 8185.

Johansen was a member of Nansen's "Fram" expedition - "so eager to take part in the expedition, as no other post could be found for him, he accepted the position of stoker". Nansen selected Johansen to be his companion on the famous journey over the ice towards the North Pole and then to Franz Josef Land. Johansen's account is significantly scarcer than Nansen's best-selling Farthest North which also documents this famous expedition in the "Fram". Scarce in this condition.
