Detailed Product Description
Full title: Rejoice My Heart: The Making of H. R. Mill's “The Life of Sir Ernest Shackleton” - The Private Correspondence of Dr. Hugh Robert Mill and Emily Shackleton, 1922-33

California, 2007, 1st edition, limited edition of 500 (not numbered). 142,pp, 5 color and 3 b/w photos. New hardcover with dust jacket. 

SIGNED by Michael Rosove.

On 18 April 1922, just over three months following Sir Ernest Shackleton’s death on South Georgia Island, Emily Shackleton, Sir Ernest’s widow, invited Hugh Robert Mill, the greatest Antarctic historian of his time, to write Sir Ernest’s biography. He wrote back the same day graciously accepting the invitation, and she responded, “Your kind letter rejoiced my heart.”

These two then embarked on a fast-paced project that would launch the first Shackleton biography a mere twelve months later. Their motivation was a mutual commitment to erecting a monument to the great explorer’s memory. They communicated mostly by the post and thus left a trail of their creative process, to the delight of posterity.

Their correspondence reveals facts about Sir Ernest, his family, and associates not found in the published works. It also reveals to us the personalities and sensibilities of Dr. Mill and Lady Shackleton. Includes a preface by the Honourable Alexandra Shackleton and introduction by T. H. Baughman. Half the proceeds from sales will benefit the William Mills Library Acquisitions Fund of the Scott Polar Research Institute.
