Two Men in the Antarctic An Expedition to Graham Land 1920-1922
BAGSHAWE, Thomas Wyatt
Cambridge, The University Press. 1939.
First edition; 8vo; original boards and dust jacket. Nineteen plates and and a folding photographic panorma. With a foreword by Frank Debenham. Inscribed by the author. "The grandly named British Imperial Antarctic Expedition of 1920-21 is one of Antarctic's ironies: four principals embarked for the poorly equipped journey, but Bagshawe and his enemy Lester were left on their own in the Antarctic during a hazardous winter. Bagshawe being a geologist of sorts and a man to finish what he starts, this account holds its own in the annals of polar exploits." (Taurus Collection). A very good copy in the scarce dust jacket which has a few minor chips.
