Product description

Scott’s Last Expedition
In two volumes
Volume I: Being the journals of Captain R F Scott, RN, CVO
Volume II: Being the reports of the journeys & the scientific work undertaken by Dr E A Wilson and the surviving members of the expedition
Arranged by Leonard Huxley
With photogravure frontispieces, 6 original sketches in photogravure by Dr E A Wilson, 18 coloured plates (16 from drawings by Dr Wilson), 260 full-page and smaller illustrations from photographs taken by Herbert G Ponting and other members of the expedition: panoramas and maps.
John Murray, London, 1914. 5th edition.
Hardbacks; 180 x 245 mm; dark blue boards with gold titles on spines and front covers; volume I: xxvi & 636 pages; volume II: xviii & 534 pages. No dust jackets.
Both volumes are in good condition. The binding is generally sound. There is some scuffing and bumping of the covers, and wear along the joints. The titles on the spines are a little faded. Volume I is slightly cocked. There is foxing and tanning to the edges of the leaves of both volumes which have been irregularly cut along the fore and bottom edges. In both volumes there is some foxing and marks internally.
Volume I: there is a circa 4 cm crack along the gutter at the top at pages 64/65, and cracking along the gutter at pages 304/305 and 544/545. The photograph between pages 100 and 101, and the pencil sketch and tissue guard between pages 566 and 567 are loose but still attached. There is a closed tear at the bottom of page 489/490. The fold out map at the end of the volume has a jagged closed tear which does not affect the map itself. The back free endpaper is creased vertically.
Volume II: there are a few small dog ears. There is a pencil margin note “142” on page 17. There is some cracking along the gutter at page 80/81. There is a closed tear on the fore edge at page 203/204. The fold out map between pages 290 and 291 is loose but still attached.
The story of the race to the South Pole, won by Roald Amundsen, and the deaths of Captain Scott and his party are well known. These volumes present a detailed account of Captain Scott’s ill-fated expedition, the journals themselves, and the detailed reports of other aspects of the expedition. The scientific aspects are of equal interest as are the photographs, sketches, and maps.
These volumes will appeal to a range of interests: exploration, historical, and scientific.
