Richard E. Byrd TLS: "I am sending you greetings from the Antarctic"


1p typed letter signed by explorer Richard E. Byrd (1888-1957) as "REByrd" in green ink at lower right. Written on January 15, 1956 from an expeditionary base in Antarctica. On cream stationery, with the header "United States Antarctic Activities / Officer-in-Charge / Antarctica" at top. Expected paper folds, a few chipped edges, and light overall toning, else very good. 8" x 10.5".


In part:


"At the suggestion of my valued friend, Paul Dean Arnold of Port Chester, I am sending you greetings from the Antarctic.


This is my seventh Polar expedition (fifth in the Antarctic). On December 28, 1955, with six of my veterans, [I] revisited Little America's I, II, III, and IV. We commissioned Little America V on January 4, 1956..."


Byrd was an accomplished aviator and intrepid explorer. He had made the first flight to the Arctic in 1926 followed by a transatlantic flight in 1927 that missed Charles Lindbergh's record by two months. Byrd's first Antarctic mission, conducted via ships and airplanes between 1928-1930, had been a tremendous scientific and popular success. During his second Antarctic mission in 1934, Byrd manned a meteorological station alone for five months. His 1938 memoir Alone describes his near death from carbon monoxide poisoning and subsequent rescue.


This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
