About this Item

SOLE EDITION IN FACSIMILE OF SCOTT'S ENTIRE EXPEDITION DIARY FROM OCTOBER 1910 TO MARCH 1912. 'A story to stir the hearts of every Englishman'; thus Winston S. Churchill characterised the immortal story of Scott, Wilson, Oates, Bowers and Evans. 'The story of the journey back to their Base Camp on McMurdo Sound has become a legend. Their courage was magnificently exemplified by Oates who walked out into the blizzard, never to be seen again, in order to give the others a chance. Being able to read the story in the handwriting of the man who wrote it makes the legend substantially more real and compelling'. (Peter Scott, son of the explorer). Published with the close involvement of the British Museum Library (now the British Library), where all the original dairies are now held on behalf of the nation, this high-quality facsimile includes the expedition's Base Diaries, its Sledging Orders and Diaries together with the legendary South Polar Times (complete with all its illustrations).
