Octavo. Original blue buckram, title gilt to the spine and to front board together with a ship portrait. With the dust jacket. Spine lettering oxidised, frontispiece with some short splits at the fore-edge, now professionally repaired, endpapers differentially browned, light toning and some marginal foxing, but overall very good in slightly rubbed and soiled jacket, lacking a few chips, but largely pictorially and textually complete. Portrait frontispiece and 40 other plates, 5 maps as plates, numerous diagrams, sketches and maps to the text, some full-page, folding map at the rear. First edition. An uncommon book, particularly so in the jacket. "As captain of the Aurora during Mawson's 1911-14 expedition, Davis was able to produce one of the few first-hand accounts available in print. His publishers, however, clearly had wartime difficulties with the book, most often seen today with its gilt lettering and decoration badly faded" (Taurus). This is a very well-preserved copy with the design to the front board still bright, and the attractive jacket largely intact. Howgego III, M28; Taurus 101. N° de ref. de la librería 88744
