Ernest Shackleton

We had seen God in His splendours, heard the text that Nature renders. We had reached the naked soul of man’ (Ernest Shackleton on the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition).

Ernest Shackleton, born in County Kildare, Ireland, in 1874, was for many years the forgotten man of Antarctic exploration, overshadowed by Captain Scott. Now his achievements have been recognized as amongst the very greatest in the annals of exploration.  His two most famous books The Heart of the Antarctic and South are highly sought after, the former appearing in a special issue, bound in vellum with an addition volume ‘The Antarctic Book’ including the signatures of the shore party of the 1907-09 expedition.
