'The Pallid Glow of a Midwinter Noon at Cape Denison' [Australasian Antarctic Expedition, 1911-1914]

A very large vintage blue-toned carbon print (visible image size 422 × 577 mm) on the original thick cardboard mount, recently matted, framed and glazed (external dimensions, an impressive 690 × 835 mm). The original printed label from the Fine Art Society, New Bond Street, London, is on the verso of the mount: 'This photograph is enlarged from a negative taken during Dr Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition ...'. The title and catalogue number (98) are manuscript insertions. Apart from two light scratches near the right-hand margin the photograph is in fine condition, and the print quality is superb. Provenance: from the personal collection of Sir Douglas Mawson, and by descent (with the Mawson Estate stamp on the verso).
