Footnotes

  • There are 22 chapters on the considerable collection of material studied brought back by the Southern Cross Expedition, including Edward A. Wilson on antarctic seals. Appearing for the first time in print are extensive extracts from the diary of the zoologist Nicolai Hanson, tragically killed in 1899, "a great loss to the expedition, as it was to science generally, for, either from want of knowledge or want of care on the part of the survivors, his collections suffered considerably" (E.R. Lankester, preface).

    Provenance: Leeds Public Library (withdrawn); Martin L. Greene (Seattle) from Bob Finch (High Latitude).
