About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1933, this book is a collection of extracts from the letters and diaries of British doctor, ornithologist and explorer Alexander Wollaston, beginning with the end of his schooldays at Clifton in 1893 and ending a year before his murder in 1930. Wollaston's papers give an intimate view into his various expeditions to a wide variety of locations, including Everest and New Guinea. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of exploration or in Wollaston and his legacy.
