About this title

Synopsis:

"This book you are holding is, I believe, the first encyclopedia ever written about the Antarctic. I feel sure it will be welcomed by libraries and Antarcticans, as well as by the general reader, now that there is such an explosion of serious interest in the Southern Continent and especially in its preservation"-from the Foreword by Sir Edmund Hillary.
The 15,000 alphabetically-arranged and cross-referenced entries cover geographical features, explorers, scientists, scientific stations, vessels, tour operators, scientific terms, birds, animals, insects, flora, etc.
A 1,300 entry chronology, 1502-1990, heralds significant events in the history of Antarctica. A second chronological list describes 570 expeditions, complete with years, vessels and commanders. Extensive bibliography.
