THE WORST JOURNEY IN THE WORLD Antarctic 1910-1913 - CHERRY-GARRARD, Apsley - 1922. [1230453]
George H. Doran Company, New York City 1922 - 8vo. Pagination: lxiv, 300, [4]; viii, 301-585, [blank leaf]. Printed in Great Britain by R. & R. Clarke, Edinburgh. "Being an account of Scott's last Antarctic expedition 1910-1913, especially of the winter, polar, and search journeys; with the diaries of those who took part, panoramic and other illustrations and sketch maps by the late Dr. Edward A. Wilson and others." Both volumes bound in the same manner as the Constable first printing, i.e. blue-grey papered boards with paper-labeled linen spines. The blue-grey endpapers do not appear original, but consistent with the original endpapers. The paper spine labels are chipped, more so to volume I, but are quite legible. Spines darkened. Light discoloration to edges of boards, with some edge-rubbing. Frontispiece tissue guard present in both volumes. Bottom edge of text block of volume II scored, but with no significant affect to contents. Binding tight and no internal markings of former owner. Pages bright and unmarked. Similar collation to the Constable printing, but without the ten panoramas. All plates and maps are present and placed as stipulated. Rosove 71.C1, not in Spence. Two volume set in publisher's original binding [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
