Robert Falcon Scott was a famed British explorer who is most famous for his early 20th-century expeditions to Antarctica. The second expedition, also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, proved to be a highly important journey even though Scott died before the end. On this excursion, Scott and his crew discovered fossils of plants on Antarctica, seemingly proving that parts of Antarctica were joined to other continents.

In 1913, a report of the Terra Nova Expedition was published in New York, the first volume, of which, comprises of Scott’s journals and notes. It also includes the farewell letters found by his side and as well as Wilson’s accounts and results of the scientific work completed by the surviving members of the crew. Huxley’s accompanying notes are both somber and informative.

 

This work was printed with a plethora of illustrations including colored engravings, photographs, and other in-text figures. Six of the photogravures and 16 of the color plates are from sketches by Edward A. Wilson. The photos were taken by Herbert G. Ponting and other members of the expedition. A classic of polar travel containing 279 fascinating illustrations!
