Captain Scott is the 16th title in the 561 series, colourfully written by L du Garde Peach and illustrated by John Kenney. This title was first published with a dustwrapper. In this colourful telling of the ill-fated voyage, writer L du Garde Peach gives a very vivid account of the trials and suffering of the party. Every time I read it, I find myself hoping that this time it might end differently.
This book still has its original dustwrapper (price-clipped). It’s in very good condition inside. The DJ is in good condition. There’s very little wear to the DJ but a 2 inch closed tear near spine on back panel and a few other chips and creases. Inside the pages are in great condition – a neat name and adddress facing the title page. I believe it to be a first edition and is the last title listed on the DJ back flap.
