Scott's British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-04) made the first balloon ascent on the continent, several overland sledge journeys, and achieved a new furthest south of 82°16.5’S. His book set a new standard for polar literature with its details of the expedition’s planning, execution, and results. The first printing quickly sold out and the book was described as being ‘among the foremost books of travel and discovery’. A classic work from the Heroic Age. Rosove 286.B6.
