Richard Evelyn Byrd, Rear Admiral, United States Navy - Little America: Aerial Exploration in the Antarctic and The Flight to the South Pole

New York: Putnam, 1930. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. 8vo. Blue cloth binding. 422 pp. Dark topstain. Illustrated with 74 pictures and maps. Very good condition; no dust jacket. Light rubbing to edges of covers. Inscribed by author to adventuress Edna Goss of San Jose, CA on flyleaf; ownership notes of same in pencil on front endpaper verso. Clean text.

"Little America" chronicles Byrd's historic journey to survey the Antarctic. His cryptic commentary and strange public statements have caused many to believe there was more to his mission(s)--perhaps more to antarctica--than the official record admits. You won't be prepared to delve into this ice-cold enigma unless you have this first-edition first-hand account from the man himself--not, that is, unless you have the Byrd's eye view.
