Neat bookplate on inner front cover, a fine bright copy.


Boy's adventure novel which one might assume was set in the Arctic; but in fact the is set in the Pacific Northwest, Russia, The Swiss Alps, India, The Himalayas and anywhere else that the author cared to send his characters for a chapter or two. There appears to be some scuttlebut about the existence of an earlier edition published by Ward, Lock and dated 1900, but we have deemed this edition to be a phantom. The British Museum deposit copy is dated 1904, as is ours, and Ward Lock dated their first editions while dropping the dates on reprints, and we stand firm on this being the correct first printing.
