Peary’s 1905 attempt at the Pole departed from northern Ellesmere Island. He made a disputed claim of reaching 87º06’, a new ‘furthest north’. He then returned to Ellesmere and continued along the western shore from which he made his sighting of the non-existent Crocker Land. An important work in the annals of polar exploration. A very nice copy.
