    Shackleton's South - The Story of the Ill-Fated Expedition of the Endurance

    Ernest Henry Shackleton. South. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914-1917. London: William Heinemann, 1919. First edition, second impression. Large octavo. [xxii], 368 pp. With eighty-four photographic plates on forty-two inserted leaves, and a two-color fold-out map inserted at rear. Publisher's full navy blue cloth, front cover decoratively stamped and lettered in silver, spine lettered in silver. Binding rubbed, with a small tear and some wear to the spine, some light soiling to cloth, hinges starting. Still, a very good copy.
    This is the book which chronicles Shackleton's ill-fated expedition of the vessel Endurance, and the near-miraculous survival of the crew. One of the interesting things about this expedition, is that it was one of the first to have professional photographers along for the voyage. In fact, it is mostly photographs by these men (Frank Hurley and George Marston) which illustrate the present work.
    From the Palo Alto Collection of Modern Literature.
