Two volumes. Blue cloth stamped in silver. 4to. 366 & 451pp. Illustrated with 12 color plates, numerous black & white plates throughout the text, 1 folding panorama, and 3 folding maps in rear pocket of Vol. 2. First American edition. The story of the Nimrod Expedition, the first of three expeditions to the Antarctic led by Ernest Shackleton. The party reached a farthest south within 97 miles of the pole, reached the South Magntic Pole, achieved the first ascent of Mount Erebus, and carried out extensive geological, zoological and meteorological work. In this set the folding panorama containing 2 views of Mount Hope is bound into Vol. 1 and not inserted separately into the map pocket in Vol. 2. This set is in good condition with some rubbing to the cloth, some spotting to the covers and spines and some wear to the spine tips and cover edges. Internally the text is very good with some scattered foxing and wear.

The title page of Vol. 1 has a 2-inch closed tear at the top. The front hinge of Vol. 2 is cracked but secure. The maps are in very good condition with some foxing and browning but no tears.
