A propos de cet article

Xviii, [2], 328 pages, 28 plates (some in color) , map, cloth, backstrip sun-faded otherwise very good. First American edition. From the Wikipedia website: "The 1955-58 Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition (CTAE) was a Commonwealth-sponsored expedition that successfully completed the first overland crossing of Antarctica, via the South Pole. In keeping with the tradition of polar expeditions of the 'heroic age' the CTAE was a private venture and was also supported by the governments of the United Kingdom, New Zealand, United States, Australia and South Africa, as well as many corporate and individual donations, under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth II. It was headed by British explorer Dr Vivian Fuchs, with New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary leading the New Zealand Ross Sea Support team. The New Zealand party included scientists participating in International Geophysical Year (IGY) research while the UK IGY team were separately based at Halley Bay. " SR2270A ; 328 pages.
