Remarkable photographic record of the Terra Nova Expedition. Charles Wright was part of Robert Falcon Scott's last expedition, the Terra Nova Expedition to the Antarctic in 1910-1913. This expedition of exploration and scientific discovery resulted in several publications on a variety of subjects.

Intended for a specialised readership, this book would have been produced in a small run. It is remarkable on account of the large number of photographs from the major photographers on the expedition. It is the most illustrated work of all the Terra Nova publications, and includes numerous photographs by Herbert Ponting. These photographs, as well as documenting this spectacular expedition, stand as landmarks of modern photography. Many of these photographs only appear in this work.

First edition, 4to (31.2 x 24 cm), xx, 581 pp, 47 plate leaves with 291 photographs by Ponting, Wright, Priestley, and others, 1 folding map, numerous maps and illustrations in text, the complete set of 15 folding maps in rear pocket. Original red cloth gilt, rebacked preserving part of original spine (soiled), a good copy.

Rosove 293-8 A1, Taurus 89.
