A beautiful book that tells the story of the heroic age of antarctic exploration through the photographs of Herbert Ponting and Frank Hurley. The images are all in the Royal collection. There is also a history of antarctic photography and a selection of pictures of other items such as the union flag taken by Scott to the pole. The book is an excellent and beautifully produced addition to those already published on antarctic photography.
