by Seaver, George

Condition: Good

John Murray, 1948. Fourth Edition. Cloth. Good. 4th Edition; 156pp. Front cover split, otherwise Good. "GEORGE SEAVER achieved notable success in his Antarctic biographies of Edward Wilson and ' Birdie ' Bowers, Captain Scott's final companions in the heroic tragedy. This new edition of his book on Captain Scott is a necessary companion to these. The facts of Scott's life and career are already available in other books ; this is an attempt to deal with the development of his character and inner self. Of course, the main events of his life must be included again to give the background, but the portrait here given tries to do something more ; and, indeed, a character such as Scott's, with its very human failings and limitations, and its shining and abundant greatnesses, can bear and fully justify examination from all points of view. Only a great Leader of Men could do what Scott did" Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Arctic & Antarctic; Antarctic; Biography & Autobiography.
