We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for SCOTT'S LAST EXPEDITION, Being the Journals of Captain R.F. Scott and the Reports of the Journeys and the Scientific Work Undertaken by Dr. E.A. Wilson and the Surviving Members of the Expedition, Arranged by Leonard Huxley, with a Preface by Sir Clement R. Markham by [Scott Robert F.].

Description:

2 volumes. [First Edition, Second Printing], called Second Edition Extensively illustrated with 8 photogravures, 18 color plates, numerous other illustrations on plates, 5 folding panoramas, 8 folding maps. 8vo, publisher’s original blue ribbed cloth lettered in gilt on the spines and upper covers. Laid in is an interesting 1937 newspaper clipping on the 25th anniversary of Scott’s reaching the Pole. xxvi, 627, ads; xiv, 500, appendix, index. A fine and bright set, very well preserved, the bindings and giltwork clean and handsome, with some light mellowing from age and occasionally a bit of the light foxing that is typical. A FINE SET OF THIS GREAT WORK. The journals of Scott, which comprise the first volume, are a moving record of one of the great tragedies in the history of polar exploration. The last entry was made while Scott was dying in the midst of a storm during his return from the South Pole. The second volume contains the accounts of Wilson and Atkinson and several of the scientific reports generated during the expedition. It includes a preface by Clements Markham. Scott never returned from this expedition, dying on the ice with several of his party. He did manage, however, to preserve his notes where others would find them, protected from the Antarctic winds by his own corpse, and in so doing left the world this vivid record of courage, endurance and tragedy. Such copies of the originally formated books have become unusually difficult to find in this level of condition. Bookseller Inventory #
