The British Antarctic Expedition 1910 (UC)
All prices include VAT
A special edition volume written by Christine Dell’Amore, South Pole: The British Antarctic Expedition 1910, shares the epic story of the Terra Nova Expedition in which Robert F. Scott and his five-man team battled the elements—traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies—in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory.
Featuring a collection of stunning black and white photography alongside entries from Scott’s harrowing diary, this tome starkly presents this well documented tragically untold journey in an artist's limited luxury hand bound edition in extra-large format, complete with waterproof pages - the first luxury art book of its kind.
The book's proceeds are graciously donated to the Antarctic Heritage Trust who preserve expeditions and the thousands of associated artifacts survive for the benefit of future generations; and inspire people through the values associated with adventure, discovery and leadership.
