  • A FINE SET OF ONE OF THE CORNERSTONES OF ANTARCTIC LITERATURE. The work reproduces, with fine chromolithographed illustrations (mostly after Edward A.

These two volumes were produced over three winters between 1902 and 1903, whilst a later third volume pertains to the Terra Nova expedition. See illustration overleaf.
