Book Description:

This well-illustrated 1911 publication, translated from the French, vividly describes the hardships and satisfactions of Antarctic exploration and scientific research in the early twentieth century. The journal entries of expedition leader Jean-Baptiste Charcot (1867-1936) record daily life aboard ship and out on the ice.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Voyage of the Why Not? In the Antarctic: The Journal of the Second French South Polar Expedition, 1908-1910 HE distance between Europe and the Antarctic is the principal cause of the apathy so long shown toward exploration in the latter region, while in the direction of the North Pole, on the contrary, explorations grew more and more numerous. Recently, however, the South Pole has emerged from darkness. Voyagers and scientific men during the last two centuries have realized that our knowledge of the natural physical conditions of the globe must necessarily remain incomplete as long as there continues so large an unknown zone as that represented by the great white spot covering the southern extremity of the world, twice as vast as the whole of Europe. The general public, too, has been aroused to a passionate interest in the subject. There is good reason, for there is no other region of which the study is more gratifying to explorers or to the scientific men who give their attention to the observations and collections made by the explorers. Everything there, indeed, is new, much is unexpected, and whoever makes up his mind to go thither is certain of important discoveries to reward his pains.
