Edward Wilson of the Antarctic: Naturalist and Friend


This book is illustrated with Wilson's own sketches. It tells of a great Victorian character and gentleman. The biography is now rather dated and has not a hint of controversy or scandal. Wilson was one of Scott's special select group and was the 2nd doctor on the 'Discovery' expedition. Both of them saved the life of Shackleton. Wilson was to die along side Scott, a friend and loyal colleague to the very end.

This book was very popular and ran into several editions and reprints. John Murray first published in October 1933
