Frank Wild will tell the Story of his Adventures with Sir Ernest Shackleton's Expedition, 1914/17, and illustrate it with a magnificent series of Lantern Slides.
Gerald Christy, The Lecture Agency, Ca 1919, London: - Broadside, printed in brown on off white stock, not dated. Three text paragraphs tell the Antarctic story of Frank Wild; the first one begins, "Frank Wild is a plain sailor-man"; the second paragraph: "Frank Wild has ventured into the Antarctic Region with four expeditions, and altogether has given eleven years of his life to exploration in that vast area with its blizzards, ice, silence, and intense cold. . He sailed with Captain Robert F. Scott, of immortal memory; he was with Sir Ernest Shackleton, Sir Douglas Mawson and Captain E. R. G. Evans, DSO, RN. On his last journey into the frozen South he was Sir Ernest Shackleton's second-in- command, and we already know something of the deadly perils that were met and overcome." 5 x 12" One horizontal fold, with paper clip rust mark on verso only.
