About This Item

1913 ARCTIC 1ed Scott Terra Nova Expedition ANTARCTICA Voyages Illustrated 2v

Robert Falcon Scott was a famed British explorer who is most famous for his early 20th-century expeditions to Antarctica. The second expedition, also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, proved to be a highly important journey even though Scott died before the end. On this excursion, Scott and his crew discovered fossils of plants on Antarctica, seemingly proving that parts of Antarctica were joined to other continents.

This work was printed with a plethora of illustrations including colored engravings, photographs, and other in-text figures. Six of the photogravures and 16 of the color plates are from sketches by Edward A. Wilson. The photos were taken by Herbert G. Ponting and other members of the expedition. A classic of polar travel containing 279 fascinating illustrations!
