About this book

Originally published in 1989, this book lists Antarctic expeditions and related historical events from ancient times to the time of publication. With 3342 entries, covering the period from 700 BC to 1988, it is a completely revised and expanded version of a list complied by Dr Brian Roberts and first published in 1958. The addition of maps, references and an index containing approximately 27,000 entries greatly improved the quality and accessibility of the information. The region covered is the far south in general and the Antarctic in particular, including all areas covered by the Antarctic Treaty. The book will be of interest to polar, maritime and science historians and professionals concerned with all aspects of the Antartic.
