The reprint edition of the "Aurora Australis," the book written and published by Shackleton's 1907-1909 Nimrod Expedition in Winter Quarters. Most of the men contributed written works including articles, poetry, and even some fantasy (by as strait-laced a scientist as the future Sir Douglas Mawson!), expedition artist George Marston produced illustrations, then Frank Wild and Ernest Joyce typeset and printed the pages, and when everything was finished Bernard Day crafted covers from empty cases and bound the books. It is estimated that something from 75-90 original copies were made, making the original one of the rarest of Antarctic collectibles.
