Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A large-format, profusely illustrated volume issued in conjunction with the Smithsonian's exhibition commemorating the expedition of 1838-42. Controversial in its day but largely forgotten now, the expedition proved that Antarctica was a continent, produced many still-valuable maps of Pacific islands, and brought back the nucleus of the Smithsonian's natural history collections. Not a narrative history like William Stanton's The Great United States Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842 (1975), this is a collection of essays evaluating the scientific contributions made by the expedition. The text will appeal primarily to readers interested in the history of American science, but the numerous well-produced illustrations may appeal to a wider audience. Jonathan F. Husband, Framingham State Coll. Lib., Mass.
