An Original illustrated 'newspaper' / magazine. Sadly no OUTER covers, the 'newpaper' starts with the Half title - which actually looks like a full title with a 3/4 portrait of Scott. - however for some reason the celebrated Original cover by Fortunino Matania is also reproduced inside the paper on page 187 - The scene depicts Captain Scott delivering his last will to the Angels. "We have been willing to give our lives to this enterprise", from Captain Scott's last diary. The rear cover would likely have been an Advert or Adverts. The rest of the newspaper is COMPLETE and though repaired - see notes below - overall Clean and Good +. This issue commemorates the ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition and the disastrous ending of this Second Scott Antarctic Expedition of 1910-1913. It includes many previously unpublished photographs and other illustrations, as well as diary entries, articles and a chronology of polar exploration, etc, etc. Illustrated throughout with b/w and blue-tinted photographs/illustrations, maps, etc, with full page and multi-photos to a page and double page pictures, etc. Folio.182pp -220 pp + v-xviii pp. This issue is mainly concerned with the ill-fated Scott Expedition to the South Pole, in which Captain Robert Falcon Scott and two other of his companions, Edgar "Taff" Evans & Captain Titus Oates "The Soldier" lost their lives. But the 'newspaper' also has some other more general topic articles, including Theatre Reviews; 'The Reconciliation of Hohenzollern and Guelph' with the wedding of Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia and Prince Ernest Auguste of Cumberland, etc. Also articles covering - 'Modes of the Moment - Chapeaux'; 'Women's Sphere' ; 'In the Petrol World', etc, etc. Quite a few b/w adverts in the body of the magazine. A fascinating period magazine normally, but this Special Edition is particularly scarce. Fair Condition overall but COMPLETE, apart from the missing outer covers. HOWEVER there are a lot of edge tears throughout - most only in the blank margins, but a couple are longer, running into the body of the text/illustration, all of which have now been neatly repaired with archive tape. The spine is torn and split, and there are some marks/stains here and there, but the worst being mainly on the outer blank margin of the Matania illustration of the Front cover. This runs through the adjoining pages in the margins until it peters out completely. Overall classified as Fair, due to the issues noted. See Images. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall
