The Lands Of Silence. A History of Artic & Antarctic Exploration.


This book was highly acclaimed on publication and remains one of the best accounts of polar explorations. It has become a highly sought after book in the antiquarian market, fine copies selling for £200 or more. To my knowledge, no reprint has previously been available.
