Filchner's expedition plan to cross the polar ice from the Weddell Sea to the Ross Sea came to an abrupt end when the ice broke up under their base and they were forced to winter over aboard ship. This is the first English translation of Filchner's expedition narrative, edited by noted polar historian Prof. William Barr. This translation also includes Filchner's 'Exposé', published in 1956, which sheds further light on the interpersonal frictions within the party. Now out of print. Uncommon.

Conrad p.196, Karrow 211, Rosove 127.A1, see Spence 457.
