Lady Kennet, formerly the wife of Captain Scott, married Edward Hilton Young in 1922. She died in July, 1947. This beautifully produced record of her works in sculpture includes those of T. E. Lawrence, George Bernard Shaw, and Fridtjof Nansen, culminating in the statue of her husband, Captain Robert F. Scott. Gwynn, who provided the text for the book, also authored a biography of Captain Scott.
