I've just managed to get this via interlibrary loan.

Newer members of the forum may not know of it.

Anthony is not far out when he says it's "sheer delight". It's beautifully illustrated by Laurie McGaw in an appropriately old fashioned style. The painting of the old cash register alone is worth a peep. As well as the paintings, it has numerous photos of Douglas Spedden, his parents and Polar. There are other contemporary illustrations of Titanic and other ships. Ken Marschall helped get technical points right.

Observant readers will notice a drawing derived from two Francis Browne photos.

Even our resident curmudgeon would love it!
