Southward on the Quest. Shackleton's Last Antarctic Expedition
Scala Souvenir, 1922. [Shackleton, Ernest H.] Southward on the Quest. Shackleton's Last Antarctic Expedition [so titled to upper cover]. Scala Souvenir, [?London], n.d. c. 1922. First edition. Oblong folio. 8 phototype plates each approx. 227 x 290mm; some minor foxing to several plates, else very good in the original printed wrappers, window to upper wrapper as issued to reveal Shackleton's portrait from the first plate, minor creasing, a scarce item. This scarce ephemeral item seems to have been printed as a memorial to 'The Boss', and was possibly issued in tandem with the film of Shackleton's last expedition. The brochure contains 8 images: 'Farewell' (a knee-length portrait of Shackleton doffing his hat, cigarette in hand); 'The late Sir Ernest Shackleton and the Crew of the "Quest"'; 'Frozen in the ice'; 'The Ship's Dog'; 'Penguins on the Ice'; 'Iceberg and Floe Ice'; 'In Antarctic Garments'; 'We left him under the Southern Cross' (a view of the Shackleton memorial cairn).
