With Scott, The Silver Lining
TAYLOR, Griffith

Category: Travel

London Smith, Elder & Co. 1916.


First edition, first issue; 8vo; original cloth boards; 7 maps, 2 photographic panoramas, 73 photographic and other illustrations on 50 plates, 97 sketch diagrams. Taylor provides one of the most substantial accounts of Scott's Terra Nova expedition, and one of its finest book productions (Taurus). Taylor led the Western party in their exploration of the mountains of Victoria Land and then Granite Harbour. His journal, sledge diaries and field notes provided an excellent source of information for the book. This is the first issue without the author's preface. A fine copy with two neat ownership inscriptions to front free end paper.
