Descripción:

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. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. No Jacket. 2010 UK, facsimile ltd to 500 #’ed copies, 4to, pp.xiii, 3-87, [106], 91-227, color frontis, 4 bw photos mounted on card w/ tissue guards, 11 color & 19 bw photos, 34 color & 16 bw illus, 2 maps, appendices, page ribbon, gilt lettered spine & front, dark blue cloth w/ color portrait in gilt frame; issued w/o dj, cloth new. ----- Ninety-seven years after the facsimile publication of Volume III, the South Polar Times is complete with this facsimile publication of the manuscript of Volume IV, held by the Scott Polar Research Institute. All four volumes of this expedition ‘magazine’ were single-copy products from Scott’s two expeditions; the first two volumes from the British National Antarctic ‘Discovery’ Expedition (1901-04), the latter two from the British Antarctic ‘Terra Nova’ Expedition (1910-13). Volume III was created during the first Antarctic winter of 1911, prior to Scott’s departure for the South Pole, with Cherry-Garrard as editor and typist, and Wilson as principal illustrator. Volume IV was produced during the second winter of 1912. At this time the fates of both the Pole Party and Northern Party were unknown. Editing was again done by Cherry-Garrard with the assistance of Debenham. Without the illustrations of Wilson and photos by Ponting, who had returned home, this volume was considered to be below the standard of the other three, although better than expected, and was not reproduced in facsimile. Facsimile editions of Volume I and II were issued in a limited edition of 250 copies (1907) and Volume III in a limited edition of 350 copies (1914). A 3-volume Centenary Edition, limited to 350 copies, was also produced in 2002. Now, after many years, Volume IV, in a limited edition of 500 copies, takes its rightful place alongside the previous three volumes. The complete text encompasses 106 unnumbered pages printed on their recto sides. The volume is enhanced with an introduction by Ann Savours on the tradition of polar publishing, an annotated list of the contents of Volumes I – III, biographies of those who contributed to the South Polar Times, appendices on sledging flags, and more. This book weighs four pounds. Book. Nº de ref. de la librería 25684

EDITION LIMITED TO 500 NUMBERED COPIES. The South Polar Times is a magazine created by members of Captain Scott’s two expeditions to entertain themselves during the four months of Antarctic winter.

It contains 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, and presents an unsurpassed picture of a close and dedicated 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.
