Polar Exploration celebrates the heroic exploits of the world’s greatest polar explorers. Produced by the Royal Geographical Society and compiled by polar historian Beau Riffenburgh, in this box cased volume you will find facsimile copies of historically important polar documents.

The book takes you on a tour of ‘heroic age’ of polar exploration, featuring the key expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic from John Ross’s 1818 investigation to the polar aviation of the 1920’s and 30’s.

Expeditions are show cased chronologically and include those led by both better and lesser known polar explorers. Facsimiles provided include a menu from the Nares' expedition, a plan of the Fram, an extract from Scott’s diary describing the death of Captain Oates and a pre-expedition letter on future party members by Shackleton.
