Footnotes

  • FINE COPY of the first Colonial issue, less common than the standard first issue printed in the same year. Bernacchi was the first Australian to set foot on the Antarctic continent. He included both the story of the expedition (the first to include a planned overwintering in Antarctica), and the scientific results in this well written account.

    Provenance: M.A. Wilson (Hobart); Martin L. Greene (Seattle) from Julien Renard (of Gaston Renard).
