The suite of four maps recording the voyage of intrepid Norwegian explorer Fridjhof Nansen, whose attempt to approach the North Pole by way of a ship equipped to withstand being frozen into the drifting ice pack became an epic adventure peaking when Nansen and his colleague Johansen set off from the ship Fram to proceed northwards. One general map gives a fine summary of contemporary knowledge of the Arctic and three sectional maps provide more specific detail of parts of the route taken. "Physical Chart Of The North Polar Regions" 550 x 515mms; "Route Of The Fram Along The Northern Coast Of The Old World" round the Taimyr peninsulas 175 x 255mms; "Franz Josef Land" 270 x 335 mms; "Route Of The Fram And Nansen's ... Sledge Journey" 230 x 395 mms. Evidence of old folds but otherwise fine.
