When ‘Southward on the Quest’, the film of the Shackleton-Rowett Antarctic Expedition (1921-22), was released, the Scala Cinema in London issued, to go with the film, “A fine series of Souvenir Pictures of the Shackleton Antarctic Expedition may be had of the Attendants. Price 2/6”. This was a folio of eight photographs taken during the expedition, bound in brown paper cover and tied with a cord. Originals are rare with one recently offered for sale at £3500. This facsimile is based on what appears to be a proof copy sent to Frank Worsley. It has his inscription to his wife “Jean, from Wuzzles, Xmas 1923”. Together with this are facsimilies of a number of items collected by noted Antarctic author John Thomson.
