"This first full-scale account of any one sector of the Antarctic tells the story of the area most rich in history - that from the Ross Sea 'south to the Pole'. From the courageous voyages of Cook and Bellingshausen in the 18th and early 19th centuries, the first penetration of the Sea by Ross himself, the first deliberate wintering in the Antarctic by Borchgrevink and the first great inland journeys by Scott and Shackleton, the story moves to the attainment of the Pole by Amundsen and Scott, the tragic, splendid, though little-known story of the Ross Sea section of Shackleton's abortive… Read More

Description:
(Durban: Durban Natural History Museum, 1989) 0620131403. Illustrations by P.A. Clancey. 208 x 147 mm; pictorial wrappers; endpaper map; pp. (vi) + 134, including index; monochrome illustrations and full-colour photographs; some monochrome habitat photographs. Light crease to bottom fore-corners of wrappers; occasional fox spot. Very good condition. "Considering the small size of Transkei in relation to southern Africa, the fact that Transkei possesses at least 50 percent of the total number of species is quite remarkable in itself. Being only half the size of Natal and Zululand, it is also interesting that the latter territories together only possess about 30 percent more than Transkei as far as bird species is concerned." .
