Scientific research publication from Capt. James Clark Rossâ€™s Antarctic expedition of 1839-1843. The lithographs are exceptionally detailed and produced from plates created well before this publication was produced (according to the text on p.1). It is very difficult to find any of the scientific research publications from the expedition of James Clark Ross in such well-preserved and complete condition.
