London: Pelican. VG wraps. 1958. paperback. paperback. 16mo . 283pp . Spine and front cover say "Pelican", but title page says "Penguin". Printed in UK, with 85c cover price. You decide! Inclined to think some of these were run off for US distribution, as Penguin at the time had a Baltimore Office, and my copy has a 5 shilling price. An account of the UK expedition to Greenland in 1952. I have xeroxed the title page of the copy I own, which has been inscribed to me by Colin Bull, who did four of the accounts in this collection. Colin quotes Byron in it. .
