1913 - Smith, London - First Edition
‘A worthy memorial of one of the great achievements of our time.’ – Winston Churchill

An exceptionally bright and clean set of the first edition, describing Scott's final, fateful and fatal journey in quest of the South Pole. Both volumes are illustrated with numerous plates from photographs by H. G. Ponting, plates from sketches and water colours by Edward A. Wilson, some colour; photogravure frontispiece portraits of Scott & Wilson, and two large folding maps.

It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more – R. Scott – For God's sake look after our people

Volume I containing the diaries of Scott, including the letters written to Wilson's mother, Bowers' mother, a string of notables including his former commander Sir George Egerton, his own mother and his wife, together with his ‘
Message to the Public’. Without these diaries, which were found on Scott’s body, we would never have known Oates’ immortal line ‘I am just going outside and may be some time’.
