8vo. 5 original issues containing the five-part article, all original wrappers, numerous illustration.; some wear to spines, tears to wrappers, adverts to front of issue no. 4 missing and contents leaf torn with much loss, first leaf of issue 5 attached to inside of front wrapper; now preserved in a purpose-made fall-down-back box lettered to the spine.
First edition. This unrecorded version of Scott's last expedition appeared over five issues of the Australian magazine Life. The first instalment is in fact an article by W.H. Fitchett, 'The Great White Battlefields of the World' - "intended to serve as an introduction to one of the greatest magazine 'features' of recent years - I.e. CAPTAIN SCOTT'S OWN STORY, of which 'Life' has been fortunate enough to secure the exclusive Australian rights" (p. 115). The later instalments are entitled 'How We Reached the Frozen Land,' 'A Winter in the Frozen Land,' 'The Trail to the South Pole,' and 'The Last Phase: Death Wins the Fight.' A note at the end of the final instalment announces that an article by Evans on Captain Oates will appear in a later issue; this is probably a reprint of his article for the Strand Magazine for 1913.
