Book Description

A lecture programme, approx. 8 x 11” (205 x 280mm); 4pp.; photo. illusts. and one sketch map, in very good condition with, loosely inserted, a 4pp. leaflet entitled ‘“With Peary in the Dash for the Pole” Biographical Sketch and Comment”.
Dealer Notes
John W. Goodsell was surgeon aboard the Roosevelt on Peary’s 1908-9 attempt on the North Pole. A resident of New Kensington, PA, Goodsell lectured to the Academy of Science and Art of Pittsburgh in February 1912, and probably gave further lectures on other occasions. These two pieces of ephemera relating to the lectures give details of the expedition, and of Goodsell himself. The inserted leaflet also provides some comment on the Cook-Peary controversy.
