The Lost Photographs Of Captain Scott
Available in Stock
Beaten to the pole by Amundsen and expiring in the frozen wastes of Antarctica, Scott's ill-fated expedition of 1911-12 is chiefly known from the adventurer's diaries and the remarkable photographs of Herbert Ponting. Less well known, and until recently forgotten and unconsidered in the vault of a photo agency, are the pictures taken by Scott himself. This unique book reproduces all 109 of these images with comprehensive explanatory text and contextual material including maps and additional photographs by Ponting.
