About this Item

London: Chatto & Windus, 1939. One Volume Edition in dustjacket. Thick 8vo - 22.8cm. pp. [lxiv]; 585. 8 black-and-white plate illustrations and 4 maps including one fold-out. Publisher's blue cloth with black lettering on front cover and spine. A complete copy in excellent condition with its original unclipped dustjacket. Dustjacket shows very little wear and with very slight darkening to spine. Interior with no prior ownership markings, no foxing, folds or tears. An unusually well preserved copy in near fine condition. Scarce. ÑRosove 71-E4. This is only first hand account of Robert Falcon Scott's ultimately doomed second expedition to the South Pole on the Terra Nova. Cherry-Garrard was the assistant zoologist and one of the youngest members of the expedition at age 24. He was responsible for laying depots, and he accompanied the team that made the ultimately tragic attempt on the pole as far as the Beardmore glacier. This is one of the best and most fluently-written accounts of Scott's last expedition and a classic of Antarctic exploration, often described as the "finest polar book ever written" (Rosove).
