London Harrison and Sons, Ltd..
First edition; 4to; original coarse grained maroon cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Fifteen folding maps in end pocket, 2 photographic plates, 21 sketch diagrams, maps, plans and charts in the text (5 full-page). Debenham was a geologist on Scott's second Antarctic journey, he was a member of both western geological parties. His map making skills are best displayed in this publication, with all maps bar one drawn from the expedition, offered together with his description and criticism of the instruments he used to take measurements. A very good copy, spine slightly faded and small library stamp of Dr Hans-Georg Strauf, Bibliothek des Geophysikischen Institutes in Gottingen, to title pages. All the maps are in fine condition and the majority of them appear to have been unopended. A nice example of a rare book.
