Caption: Fridtjof Nansen (1861-1930), Norwegian explorer, biologist and humanitarian. In 1888 he was the first to cross the Greenland ice sheet and showed that it covered the entire island. During 1893-6, travelling in his specially-strengthened ship Fram, drifting locked in the ice, and then marching on foot, Nansen reached a record northwards latitude of 86 degrees 13.6 minutes. Nansen also wrote books on the Inuit, and the central nervous system. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922 for his refugee relief work. Artwork from the 17th volume (first period of 1896) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
