Antarctic Exploration.

Washington DC: Government Printing Office, 1890. Paperback. The author, a member of the Australian Antarctic Exploration Committee of 1886, argues in favor of the exploration of Antarctica: "it would indeed be strange if an unexplored region 8,000,000 square miles in area -- twice the size of Europe -- and grouped around the axis of rotation and the magnetic pole could fail to yield to investigators some novel and valuable information" (p293). Extract from the Smithsonian Annual Report ending July 1890; pp 293 - 304. Very good condition. Item #17123

Price: $30.00
