Abstract

In 2013, some 250 Scientific Expedition Reports were transferred to Special Collections from the Science Library. These Reports range in date from 1832 to 1960, and detail expeditions made to the Arctic, the Antarctic, Uganda, Patagonia, and Arnhem Land. This image shows three shrew-like marsupials found in Australia and is from the Reports of the Erebus and Terror expedition that set sail from Chatham in Kent, England on 29 September, 1839. Led by Captain Sir James Clark Ross, the ships took a circuitous route to the South Pole, visiting many islands in the Atlantic, and Australia and New Zealand.
