This fourth edition of Herbert Pointing's account of The British Antarctic Expedition of 1910-13 is in Very Good condition. Bound in original navy boards with red title and detail, this book is in very smart, tidy condition. There is some minor wear to the edges and spine, with some rubbing to the boards. This is slight, and doesn't detract from the book.
Inside, the pages are in excellent condition, with just the slightest hint of toning and the occasional age spot. The pages are clean and bright and tightly bound. There are two neat ownership inscriptions to the front free endpaper. In all, a very smart book in lovely condition.
This book was written by Pointing with the aim of offering a clear telling of the expedition from someone who experienced it first hand. The expedition was a monumentous one of it's time, and the great explorer's words in this book have surely inspired many to follow in his footsteps and set out on their own adventures across the world. This fascinating book is complimented by an array of photographs and illustrations to enhance it's tale of adventure.
