Maitland, Alexander (Introduced by ) - Into the Unknown: Tales from the Great Explorers - ( Item 124001 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2015. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Sourced from the archives of the Royal Geographical Society, these accounts give an explorer’s eye-view of some of the most extraordinary human journeys ever undertaken. Bound in printed and blocked cloth. Set in Bulmer. 440 pages. 56 integrated black & white photographs. 10" x 6¼". If the restless travellers of exploration’s heroic age could be said to have a home, it would surely be the august halls of the Royal Geographical Society, where many of the world’s most distinguished explorers gave acclaimed lectures on their experiences. The Folio Society has collected 14 of the most remarkable accounts, spanning almost a century, from Speke and Grant’s 1863 report of their search for the source of the Nile to John Hunt and Edmund Hillary’s thrilling description of the conquest of Everest in 1953.
