The whaler ‘Morning’, owned and managed by Sir Clements Markham and under the command of William Colbeck, made two voyages in relief of Scott’s British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-04) and his ship ‘Discovery’. Doorly served as Third Officer and intended to write this book with his friend and Second Officer Edward Evans, whose influence helped Doorly to join the expedition. They were prevented from doing so by Colbeck who intended to write his own account; however, other than a brief report, this never came about. Following the first winter, Ernest Shackleton returned to NZ, against his wishes, on the ‘Morning’s’ first voyage and was replaced by George Mulock. A fine facsimile reprint of the scarce Antarctic classic first published in 1916. Now out of print.
