'Amundsens Tent at the South Pole', January 1912, (1913). Artist: Henry Bowers

'Amundsen's Tent at the South Pole', January 1912, (1913). Expedition leader Captain Robert F Scott (1868-1912), Dr Edward Wilson (1872-1912) and Petty Officer Edgar Evans (1876-1912) died on the way back from the South Pole. 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]

'Captain Oates, on the Terra Nova with the Siberian Ponies', c1911, (1914)

'Captain Oates, on the "Terra Nova" with the Siberian Ponies', c1911, (1914). British Antarctic explorer Lawrence 'Titus' Oates (1880-1912) with expedition ponies and dogs. Captain Robert Falcon Scott, leader of the Terra Nova Expedition, together with Oates and two others, reached the geographic South Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Oates, suffering from gangrene and frostbite, walked from his tent into a blizzard. His death is seen as an act of heroic self-sacrifice - aware that his ill health was compromising his three companions' chances of survival, he chose certain death. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. From "Bibby's Annual 1914", edited by Joseph Bibby. [J. Bibby & Sons, London, 1914]

Historical costume, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Historical costume, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Historical costume, c1950. Fashions of the 1910s - illustrations for characters in "The White Peacock" by DH Lawrence: hobble skirts for evening. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time.
