ARTIFACT: This is a rare signed first edition of "Little America: Aerial Exploration in the Antarctic ??? The Flight to the South Pole" by Admiral Richard E. Byrd. Byrd, a Virginia native with ties to John Rolfe and Pocahontas, was a United States Navy Admiral and Medal of Honor recipient known for his many feats of exploration by air, water, and on foot. Little America was the name Byrd gave to his first Antarctic base camp (Byrd went to the continent five times total), established for the first flight to the South Pole. It is also a widely accepted fact that Byrd was the first to fly to the North Pole as well. The book is a journal of the historic Antarctic voyage between 1928 and 1930, and has many black and white photographs and two fold-out maps. It was published in 1930 by George Putnam and Sons
