ERNEST SHACKLETON AUTOGRAPH Signature.

Anglo-Irish polar explorer.

Following his part in Robert Falcon Scott's 1901-04 expedition, Ernest Shackleton had returned to Antarctica in 1907 as head of the Nimrod Expedition, during which he set a new 'furthest south' record.  Later during his trans-Antarctica Expedition of 1914-17 his ship, Endurance, became stuck in pack ice and Ernest Shackleton led his men on a remarkable and heroic survival bid.  His reputation was, for many years, eclipsed by that of Scott, but history has re-evaluated him and he is now one of the most celebrated of polar explorers and his autograph is very much in demand.
