Luigi Amedeo, Duke of the Abruzzi (1873-1933), left for the North Pole in 1899 on board the Polar Star. Unfortunately, he lost two fingers to frostbite on the journey, so was unable to participate in the sled ride to the Pole. Captain Cagni instead made the trip, reaching 86° 34' N, a new 'Farthest North' and, as the somewhat ungracious title of this book states, 'Farther North than Nansen'.
