Charles R. Kenyon, "A Polar Eden, or, The Goal of the Dauntless" (c.1910) - Edwardian adventure fiction book
 
Charles R. Kenyon, "A Polar Eden, or, The Goal of the "Dauntless". Second Edition" (London, S. W. Partridge & Co., n.d.; inside front cover bears prize presentation label from Talskiddy Sunday School dated 1910). Edwardian hardback adventure fiction book (blue-green cloth boards with gilt titles and impressed Art Nouveau design to front and spine), 288pp plus four black and white illustrations and 32-page publisher's catalogue, measuring approximately 13.1 x 19 x 3.4cm (5.15 x 7.5 x 1.35in). An adventure story - in fact a relatively early example of science fiction - in which a group of explorers travel to the North Pole, and there find habitable territory with plants and animals thriving in its temperate climate, which they imagine could be "the Garden of Eden from which mankind has ever since been barred by regions of eternal ice"!
 
No dustjacket; the cover is marked, discoloured and damp-damaged with considerable surface wear and some bumping to the edges and corners; the pages are browned with some foxing and other marks together with age wear including some creasing and bumping, whilst the binding is weak in places.
