The Last Letters by Heather Lane, Naomi Boneham and Robert D Smith (Editors)

The Last Letters by Heather Lane, Naomi Boneham and Robert D Smith (Editors)

Description

In the final days of March 1912, Captain Robert Scott, Dr Edward Wilson and Henry Bowers were stranded by a fierce blizzard in their tent just 18km (11 miles) from safety. Knowing that they would not survive, they each wrote letters to their families and friends saying a last farewell. When the search party found the tent in November 1912, their letters were duly discovered and duly delivered.

The letters all tell of the courage and fortitude of the three men but none are more telling and poignant than that Scott addressed to his wife, Kathleen. He had started the letter some days before, when he knew that the situation was bad but not yet fatal. However, once he realised that the situation was desperate, the tone changes to one of great courage and fortitude - there can be few letters in existence that convey so much. Scott wrote the words, To My Widow, at its head.

Over the years many of the letters have made their way into the archives of the Scott Polar Research Institute. Thus reunited, together with others that have disappeared or are still in private hands, they are published here in full for the first time.

Scott Polar Bibliography

Scott and the Antarctic, an Annotated Bibliography

£18.00

Description

Scott and the Antarctic
An annotated bibliography of material in the Library of the Scott Polar Research Institute relating to Captain Robert Falcon Scott, the 1901-04 Discovery and 1910-13 Terra Nova expeditions to Antarctica

This comprehensive annotated bibliography marks the centenary of Robert Falcon Scott's 1910-13 Terra Nova Antarctic expedition, and brings together updated records for over 2,100 published items. The Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge was founded in 1920 as a lasting memorial to Captain Robert Falcon Scott, who perished with his four companions on their return from the South Pole in 1912. The Institute's Library is now home to the world's largest collection of polar material.
The bibliography lists all items in the Library's holdings which relate to Scott and the two Antarctic expeditions which he led. The entries cover the physical and biological sciences; social sciences and humanities; arts and literature; and the history of the Heroic Age of Antarctic exploration. They include reports from the 1890s on initial plans for Scott's 1901-04 Discovery expedition; hundreds of scientific papers published between 1902 and 1964; eulogies in the popular press following news of Scott's death; and obituaries of many expedition members. It contains subject and author indexes.

This unique bibliography will be of great value to scholars, historians, collectors, the wider polar research community, and also to those interested in British cultural history of the early 20th century.
