The Arctic Regions: Illustrated with Photographs Taken on an Art Expedition

A landmark in the annals of American photography and polar adventure, William Bradford’s book The Arctic Regions: Illustrated with Photographs Taken on an Art Expedition was first published for subscribers in 1873. No more than 300 copies of the leather-bound elephant folio are known to have been printed. The book has been a prized possession of major American and European museums and libraries, and a few fortunate collectors, ever since.
