An important exhibition catalogue of the artefacts brought back from Shackleton's first Antarctic expedition.

Shackleton achieved the first substantial attack on the South Pole during this journey of exploration, turning back less than 100 miles from his destination; and he returned a hero to the British public. In order to profit from the excitement, an exhibition of artefacts and pictures (partially for display and partially for sale) was hastily mounted. Today, the catalogue remains a primary reference for the artefacts brought back from Shackleton's most successful expedition.
