London Hurst and Blackett. 1901.


First edition, first issue; 8vo original green ribbed cloth lettered in gilt; illustrated from photographs taken by the author. Four page publishers catalogue at end, two folding maps (one at front is a facsimile) and one folding plate. Inscribed by the author to the title page. Bernacchi's account of the Southern Cross expedition of 1898-1900. The rather frail of this first issue binding led the publishers to issue a more hard-wearing red cloth version the same year, 'with the result that few copies survive in truly fine condition' (Taurus Collection). A very good copy with minor wear to spine ends and front hinge a little weak.. A rare inscribed copy of Bernacchi's account of the first deliberate wintering in Antarctica.

Price £2350.00
