South With Scott ... With Diagram and Three Maps.
London and Glasgow, Collin, [1921]. 8vo (212 x 136mm). Original dark blue cloth, lettered in red-orange on the spine within red-orange rules; pp. xiv, 283, [6, advertisements]; photogravure portrait frontispiece with tissue guard, 3 folding maps and folding plan; light bubbling to upper quarter of spine (as noted by Rosove to be frequently the case), uncut edges with light foxing, as well as offsetting from browned fly-leaves to a few adjacent pages (as usual), otherwise an internally clean and fresh copy; neat contemporary ownership inscription on front paste-down. First edition, second impression (in the same month as the first, November, 1921) of a classic of Antarctic exploration, very rare, a good copy. Spence 432; Renard 496 ('One of the most reprinted Antarctic books, but in this First Edition one of the rarest and most elusive'); Taurus 83; Rosove 117.A1 (our copy is absolutely conform with her description); Taurus Collection 83 (this issue, 'many editions ..., most of which were heavily used').
