Bernacchi, a physicist, served on Borchgrevink's “Southern Cross” expedition (1898-1900) and then on Scott’s British National Antarctic Expedition (1901-04), in the “Discovery”. This is the history of the “Discovery” which was built in 1900 for Scott’s expedition. Following this expedition, the “RRS Discovery” returned to southern waters in 1925 as a whale research ship for the British Government. Her final Antarctic voyage was with Mawson’s British, Australia, New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE, 1929-31). “Discovery” has now been fully restored and resides in Dundee, Scotland. Copies including the dust jacket are scarce.
