8vo., First Edition, with numerous illustrations; cloth, a near fine copy in the dustwrapper. The South Polar Times was a magazine created by members of Captain Scott’s two expeditions to entertain themselves during the four months of Antarctic winter. Typed up, and illustrated with paintings, sketches and photographs, each issue was read aloud to all hands. They contain a mixture of the ‘grave and gay’, serious reports on the weather or fauna interspersed with cartoons, songs and articles that poke fun at members of the expedition. Together the material gives us an unsurpassed sense of their community. There were four volumes in all (two expeditions with two winters) each with four issues. The originals of volumes I and II (Discovery) were given to the Royal Geographical Society and published in 1907 in a limited edition of 250 copies each. The original of volume III (Terra Nova) is housed in the BL (along with Scott's Diary); it was published in 1914 in limited edition of 300 copies. The three volumes were reissued in 2002. The manuscript of volume IV is held in the Scott Polar Research Institute and is published here for the first time, together with Savour's' introduction all four volumes.
