Taylor served as geologist with Scott on the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-13) and led the Western Journeys. This is the scarcest of the firsthand accounts from this expedition. This 2nd issue is scarcer than the 1st and more desirable as it contains Taylor’s two-page preface, which was inadvertently omitted from the 1st issue. A very desireable account of this important expedition. Very scarce.

Conrad pg.190, Renard 1575, Rosove 324.A2, Spence 1183.
