  • VERY SCARCE COPY IN ORIGINAL PARTS. Only very few sets in this format are known, this copy being the first that Rosove had seen (and was used by him in his bibliography). Single parts were sold for 50 öre, double part issues at one krona, with the special cloth chemise bindings available from the publisher at one and a quarer krona.

    The Swedish Antarctic Expedition of 1901-03 was eventful, as the men became separated into three separate parties and their boat, Antarctic, was wrecked and sunk. The men were eventually rescued by an Argentinian ship, and only one man perished.

    Provenance: Martin L. Greene (Seattle) from Charlotte du Rietz (Stockholm).
