Pull down menu for prices incl postage

Dr Edward Adrian Wilson is one of the best known of Cheltenham's native sons and one of the most widely respected naturalists, artists and explorers from the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. Despite this, remarkably little has been written about him.

In this exciting new work, Dr David M. Wilson, his great nephew, and David B. Elder, a local Cheltenham librarian, have collaborated to produce the first biography of Edward Wilson for many years. It is richly illustred with photographs and paintings, many of which are being made available to the public for the first time. The book traces the Cheltenham roots of Edward Wilson's extraordinary life, identifies many of the local sights associated with him, and follows him through to his death with Captain Scott on the return from the South Pole in 1912.

144pp. 12 Colour Plates and over 100 black and white illustrations.
