Published by Little Brown, London, 2011, 1st UK Edition, D/w, Fine.    Captain Robert Falcon Scott perished with four of his fellow explorers on their return from the South Pole in March 1912.  Most photographs of that Terra Nova expedition were those of the official photographer, Herbert Ponting, but for the final, fateful months the photographic record was to be provided by Scott himself, having been trained by Ponting.  Scott’s photographs were lost for over 50 years but have now been resurrected by David Wilson (whose great-uncle, Dr. Edward Wilson, died with Scott) and “provide a completely new dimension to the last great expedition of the Heroic Age of Antarctic exploration”.
