Footnotes

  • In this account, written by the expedition geologist, "one reads about the wild adventures and amazing survival of the so-called Northern Party - an episode which may in our time achieve greater popularity than the dour tragedy of Scott's polar march" (Taurus). The six men of the Northern Party spent 21 months separated from the rest of their companions, firstly at Cape Adare, and later in the ice cave. A number of copies were destroyed in a warehouse fire, caused by a Zeppelin attack, during the War.

    Provenance: Martin L. Greene (Seattle) from Julien Renard (of Gaston Renard).
