Original blue cloth with silver pictorial cover. 8vo. 243pp. plus ads (4pp). Illustrated. Ex-Library. First edition. An account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition of 1894-95 led by Leonard Kristensen. Bull, a Melbourne resident, organized the voyage and served as its manager. This commercial enterprise in search of whaling grounds and seals was funded by the Norwegian whaler Svend Foyn. By late 1894 the ship had penetrated the pack ice and entered the Ross Sea. At Cape Adare a crew including Kristensen, Bull and Carstens Borchgrevink went ashore, becoming the first men to set foot on the continent. There are 12 plates in the book showing sealers at work, a portrait of Foyn, and many of the ship surrounded by icebergs. A good copy only with some heavily soiled pages and some edge-chipping. A stain runs along the top border of many of the book's pages. The library markings are an ink stamp on the title page and in the margins of the first 2 plates. The only other library mark is a small ink number on the copyright page. The title page has an ink library stamp above the imprint and a small ink number on the copyright page. The binding is good with some rubbing and wear to the covers. This copy has been rebacked with a new cloth spine and has new endpapers inside. Quite rare. N° de ref. de la librería 4797
