Philadelphia: Lippincott, (1915). Sm. thick 4to. Orig. blue cloth with silver titles to front covers & spines. With 2 frontispieces, 21 full-page col. plates & captioned tissue-guards, 274 photographic plates mostly by Frank Hurley, 37 text-illusts. which include maps, plus 3 large folding maps in end-pocket of Vol. 2. Errata-slip in Vol. 1. 1st Amer. ed. Uncut. Complete. Spence 773. Assoc. newspaper cutting loosely inserted. NOTE: This account, so profusely illustrated by the magnificent photographs of Frank Hurley, is a classic of Polar Literature, describing the first major scientific exploring venture by an Australian beyond his native shores. Mawson's lone survival after the fatal tragedy of his two companions (Ninnis and Mertz) was to become the most extraordinary epic of survival in Antarctica. He was undoubtedly one of the most outstanding explorers of the 20th century and ranks high among our national icons. So much so that it is his portrait that adorns our original $100 bill.
