Scott Polar Bibliography



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.
