Long regarded as ‘the’ classic work of Antarctic literature, Cherry-Garrard was the youngest member of Scott’s British Antarctic Expedition 1910-13 and the assistant zoologist. In addition to using his own material, he had access to the diaries of Wilson, Bowers, Lashly, Priestley, and Atkinson. He presents the entire story of the main party, the Winter Journey to Cape Crozier to collect Emperor penguin eggs (of which he was the only member to survive the expedition), the Polar Journey, the Search Journey, and the second ascent of Mount Erebus. The ten folding panoramas are only present in this first UK edition. This is a wonderful set housed in a custom-made slipcase.

Ranked first by National Geographic on their list of “The 100 Best Adventure Books of All Time”. A cornerstone work for any Antarctic collection. Uncommon. AB-USN 23-63.33, Conrad p.173, Karrow 145, Meadows 328, Neate C37, Renard 305, Rosove 71.A2, Spence 278, Stam p.90, Taurus 84.
