Scott's Last Journey - Edited by Peter King

Gerald Duckworth & Co., 0, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “As the years have gone by, Scott’s reputation has been weighed in the balance with Shackleton’s — and found wanting. Even the precious journals that Scott wrote on the journey are no longer in print, while photographs of the expedition have gathered dust in scientific institutes. In this new edition of the Journals, Peter King re-examines Scott’s exploits, setting his own account against modern studies of the Polar Race and thus enabling readers to make their own judgements for the first time. The text is illuminated by a selection of photographs, taken by one of the greatest Antarctic explorers, Herbert Ponting, who accompanied Scott.”
