Presentation copy from Captain Scott’s second in command to an Irish woman who had sent him a ‘gift parcel of steak’ during the Second World War.

Evans’ book is bound in soft, textured cloth, stamped with an image of him on skis in blue to the upper board and blue spine lettering. Slight toning to the extremities of the binding which is otherwise very good. Blue decorative endpapers, a map tipped onto the verso of the final free endpaper, very good text. Evans has inscribed the book on the front flyleaf: ‘With Best Wishes from E R G R Evans/ 1943’. Laid in is a note from Evans typed on HQ London Civil Defence Region headed paper and addressed to a Mrs Mchoone, 27th February, 1943, in Dublin thanking her for her gift ‘which we look forward to eating today - enough for the whole household.’ In response ‘I am sending you a copy my book “South with Scott”, which I hope you will enjoy reading.’ This is similarly signed by Evans. The letter is contained within its original OHMS manila envelope.

The book was first published in 1921 and as an eye witness account of Scott’s expedition to the South Pole has become one of the classic polar titles. Although he nearly died during the expedition Evans went on to have a successful subsequent career, distinguishing himself during the First World War, rising to the rank of Admiral during the interwar years and working, as shown here, in Civil Defence during the Second World War.
