A Negro Explorer at the North Pole. Matthew Alexander Henson.

A Negro Explorer at the North Pole

NY: Stokes, (c. 1912). 1st ed. Hardcover. frontis, 200p. Original blue cloth. Small printed photo of Henson mounted on front cover as published. 19cm. Cover somewhat soiled and worn. Ex Lib. (stamps viously for N.Y Sunday American and The American Weekliy). No jacket. While the controversy over Peary, Henson and the North Pole continues, Henson's courage and bravery remain beyond question. This first edition is quite elusive -- almost every copy that we've had ends up being purchased by collectors of Arctic highspots rather than African Americana. Good. Item #87580
