Roald Engelbrecht Gravning Amundsen, Norwegian explorer. Artist: Unknown

Roald Engelbrecht Gravning Amundsen, Norwegian explorer. Amundsen (1872-1928) led the first expedition to reach the South Pole, arriving at the Pole in December 1911, one month before the ill-fated British expedition commanded by Captain Scott. In 1918 he became the first to navigate the Northwest Passage, discovering in the process that the route could never be navigable for large vessels. In 1928 he was killed in the Arctic in a plane crash while searching for the missing Italian aeronaut Umberto Nobile.

'Nansen at Cafe Flora', c1893-1896, (1897). Artist: Mr Jackson

'Nansen at Cafe Flora', c1893-1896, (1897). In 1888 Nansen (1861-1930) made the first crossing of Greenland. He is best known in exploration terms for his three year expedition (1893-1896) aboard the 'Fram', which enabled Nansen and his crew to get closer to the North Pole than anyone before them. After World War I, Nansen worked tirelessly for humanitarian causes including the repatriation of prisoners of war and aiding refugees. He was awarded the Nobel prize for peace in 1920. From Farthest North, Vol. 2 by Fridtjof Nansen. [Archibald Constable and Company, London, 1897]
