British Antarctic Expedition, 1910-13, covering the period 1910-11

A dark green leather-bound and gold embossed album relating to the first year (1910-11) of the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913) under Captain R. F. Scott. The album contains 45 dry-mounted prints, one per page, with typed captions. A number of these images feature in Ponting's book "The Great White South: Or with Scott in the Antarctic", first published in October 1921.

They cover scenic views of the land around the west side of Ross Island, the expedition hut and some internal images, and views from the Terra Nova as it approached McMurdo Sound through the pack ice. All the photographs were taken by Herbert Ponting as part of his role as Photographic Artist responsible for photography, cinematography, and training other expedition members in the art of photography.
