Footnotes

  • "No polar vessel ever left these shores so well adapted and prepared as the Discovery, to secure the valuable scientific results that are hoped from the exertions of explorers; and I trust that one useful aid to our gallant friends when in the far South, will be Mr. George Murray's 'Antarctic Manual'" (Clement Markham, Preface). Includes an extensive bibliograpy of earlier publications on the antarctic. Edited by George Murray, scientific director of the British National Antarctic Expedition, the Manual is an important compendium of the knowledge deemed important to the success of Scott's expedition, including papers on geography, climate, geology, arctic sledge-travel, the Aurora, and a bibliography of previous antarctic material.
