Wollaston (1875-1931), an English doctor, ornithologist, botanist, climber, and explorer, served as Medical Officer for the 1921 British Mount Everest Expedition. Originally published in 1933, and edited by his wife Mary, this is a collection of extracts from Wollaston’s letters and diaries beginning with the end of his schooldays at Clifton in 1893 and ending a year before his murder in 1930 by one of his students. Wollaston’s papers give an intimate view into his various expeditions to a wide variety of locations, including Lapland (1896, 97), Dolomites (1900), Sudan (1901, 04), Australia (1904), Japan (1904), Ruwenzori (1905), New Guinea (1910-11, 1912-13), Everest (1921), and Columbia (1923-24). This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of exploration or in Wollaston and his legacy.
