Scott's last expedition map, 1923

Map used as end covers for “cheap edition" of 'Scott’s Last Expedition' published in 1923 by John Murray. Note the polar bear in the bottom right corner! Needless to say at the time this map was created, it wasn't known that polar bears only existed in the northern polar regions.
