The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition, 1914 - 1917

SHACKLETON, Ernest H.

SHACKLETON'S GREAT FEAT OF SURVIVAL

SHACKLETON, Ernest H. South The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition, 1914 - 1917

Heinemann, 1919.

First edition. 8vo. Original dark blue cloth with titles and vignette of Shackleton's ship, Endurance, on the upper cover in silver. Colour frontispiece after a photograph by Frank Hurley, with 79 further black and white photographs by Hurley all full page, and eight drawing, on 44 plates. Fold out map to rear. A near fine copy, with the inevitable browning to the page edges, but externally very bright and crisp.

Shackleton's account of the Endurance expedition is one of the finest in the Antarctic canon and a classic of all literature on exploration.
The tale of the loss of the Endurance to the Weddell Sea, the perilous journey to Elephant Island, the unlikely voyage of the James Caird to South Georgia and the rescue mission that ensured every member of the crew survived has become legend due to Shackleton's account.
