Most Antarctic polar buffs are familiar with the Swedish Antarctic Expedition of 1901-4 under the leadership of Otto Nordenskjöld, but because all of the primary sources are in Spanish and Swedish few are familiar with the interesting homeward-bound journey aboard the Argentinean relief vessel Uruguay. The ship was severely damaged in a storm north of the South Shetland Islands, and just what transpired between the Argentinean and Swedish staffs became a matter of intriguing controversy and pride for the Argentineans. ‘When the Corvette Uruguay Was Dismasted’ is an English-language translation of a rare pamphlet entitled ‘Cuando la Corbeta Uruguay Quedo Desarbolada’ (1946, Buenos Aires) that brought the controversy to light, together with an historical introduction and appendices containing the relevant, original Spanish and Swedish materials. This is a beautifully bound, limited edition of 250 copies. See Rosove 375-1.A1.
