Cairn Left By The Norwegians, and Amundsens South Pole Mark, January 1912, (1913)

Cairn Left By The Norwegians S.S.W. from Black Flag Camp, [16 January 1912], and Amundsen's South Pole Mark, [18 January 1912], (1913). Photogravure after a sketch by Dr Edward A Wilson with wind blowing at a temperature of minus 22 degrees'. Wilson (1872-1912) died with Scott on the return journey.The final expedition of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), included a geologist, a zoologist, a surgeon, a photographer, an engineer, a ski expert, a meteorologist and a physicist among others. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901-04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Scott, accompanied by Dr Edward Wilson, Captain Lawrence Oates, Lieutenant Henry Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later. From Scott's Last Expedition, Volume I. [Smith, Elder & Co., London, 1913]
