Amundsen’s autobiography published one year before his death while searching for the dirigible Italia. In this he covers his early years, the Belgian Antarctic Expedition (1897-99), the Northwest Passage in the ship Gjøa (1903-06), the South Pole (1910-12), the Northeast Passage in the ship Maud (1918-20), his North Pole flight with Lincoln Ellsworth (1925), the Arctic Ocean crossing flight of the dirigible Norge (1926), and more. Amundsen had an extensive polar career and it is quite likely he was the first to reach both poles. Uncommon.
