A GOOD COLLECTION OF PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF ANTARCTIC EXPLORATION. Eleven of the photographs are from Captain Scott's 1910-13 "Terra Nova" expedition, for which Hebert Ponting was the official photographer, showing Ponting with various cameras and in his dark room, penguins, seals (including one enlarged duplicate), ice floes, the "Terra Nova" trapped in the ice, and on board the Terra Nova in a stormy sea. One photograph is from Scott's 1901-04 "Discovery" expedition and shows the two relief ships "Morning" and "Terra Nova", probably taken by Reginald Skelton who served as chief engineer and official photographer on that expedition.
