Captain Scott, 1963, Series 561 (DJ)


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 copy:

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.
