The official expedition photographer for the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-13) was Herbert Ponting. However, Ponting was not a member of the Southern Party which set out toward the South Pole. It was under Ponting’s tutelage that Captain Robert Scott learned the intricacies of polar photography so he could document the progress and work of the Southern Party. Remarkably, following the return of the expedion, Scott’s historic photos were initially fought over, neglected, then lost, only to resurface at auction in 2001. Here, at last, are Scott’s own breathtaking photographs: panoramas of the continent, superb depictions of mountains and formations of ice and snow, and photographs of the explorers on the polar trail. This is an important addition to the literature of both this historic expedition and Antarctic photography. This book weighs over three pounds.
