ANTARCTIC PENGUINS, Murray Levick, Heinemann, London, 1st edn., 2nd imp, 1914, original green cloth covers with embossed penguins on cover, spine title faded, VG overall, some foxing, B&W plates throughout, Levick accompanied Robert Falcon Scott as surgeon and zoologist on 1910-13 Terra Nova expedition. Levick photographed extensively throughout the expedition. Prevented by pack ice from embarking on the Terra Nova in February 1912, Levick and the other five members of the party (Victor L. A. Campbell, Raymond Priestley, George Abbott, Harry Dickason, and Frank Browning) were forced to overwinter on Inexpressible Island in a cramped ice cave.

Part of the Northern Party, Levick spent the austral summer of 1911–1912 at Cape Adare in the midst of an Adélie penguin rookery. To date, this has been the only study of the Cape Adare rookery, the largest Adélie penguin colony in the world, performed and he has been the only one to spend an entire breeding cycle there. His observations of the courting, mating, and chick-rearing behaviours of these birds are recorded in this book. Uncommon, especially in this condition $145. Arnold Heine book plate
