Copenhagen: Levin & Munksgaard, 1930. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Very large quarto. Originally a soft covered publication. This volume has been re-bound in a gray buckram binding, which is completely un-adorned but quite strong. Private Library Stamp of the previous owner to the half-title and bound in internal original soft-cover. With 170 plates, 50 portraits, and a map. Translated from the Danish by Annie I. Fausboll. This volume comes from the collection of acclaimed aviator, sailer, and adventurer, Steve Fossett. After his untimely death in 2007, his vast collection of travel and exploration books was placed at auction. This volume has Steve Fossett's book-plate on the front paste-down. A very nice copy indeed. This copy has been unread because it is largely un-cut. A strong and very clean and solid copy. This book is large and heavy and will require extra postage for overseas shipment.
