Dealer Notes
The Arctic Club, based in New York, originated in the 1894 expedition organised by Frederick A. Cook. After their return, members of the expedition met to celebrate their common interests, and over the years the membership grew. The present manual contains a list of the membership as of 1906, the Club constitution, ‘A Chronological list of Arctic and Antarctic Expeditions’ compiled by Albert Operti, and an In Memoriam section with portraits of recently deceased members. Unusually, this copy also contains some loosely inserted copies of the Club’s bulletins, which were issued semi-regularly until 1912 when the Arctic Club was absorbed by the Explorers Club.
