The Phantom of the Poles, 1906

In his 1906 book The Phantom of the Poles William Reed presents a collection of reports of polar explorers on strange and unexplained phenomena, such as warm winds, deposits of dust, rocks embedded in icebergs, large ice-free areas, fresh water areas in the open polar ocean, and bizarre auroras. This material supported his belief that the polar areas are the antechamber of the hollow earth. Reed also writes that it would be impossible to reach the poles as they did not exist, hence the title of the book.
