Description

Although it’s a piece of history learned by every British student, the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913 remains an epic story unknown to many. In this ultimate display of life and boundless bravery, Robert F. Scott and his five-man team battled the elements— traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies—in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory. Assouline is pleased to announce South Pole, providing a rare opportunity to feel an intimate connection to a heroic age of exploration.

Arriving at the South Pole on January 17, 1912, the adventurers were greeted by their worst nightmare: a Norwegian flag. Disheartened and badly frostbitten, they trudged back toward their boat only to die just eleven miles from the next depot. Featuring a collection of stunning black and white photography alongside entries from Scott’s harrowing diary, this tome starkly presents this well documented tragically untold journey in three unique formats: a trade edition in hardcover; an oversized special edition hardcover with jacket; and, most exclusively, an artist's limited luxury hand bound edition in extra-large format, complete with waterproof

pages - the first luxury art book of its kind. The book's proceeds are graciously donated to the Antarctic Heritage Trust who preserve expeditions and the thousands of associated artifacts survive for the benefit of future generations; and inspire people through the values associated with adventure, discovery and leadership.

Beyond the incredible feats of endurance, hardship, and the extraordinary scientific achievements from Scott’s last attempt, the world was captivated by Captain Scott’s prowess as a diarist and the outstanding photographic skill of team member Herbert Ponting. The written and photographic legacy enabled people to connect with this journey frozen in time as they have never before.
