A terrific collection of all of Mawson’s Antarctic diaries relating to his four expeditions – he was a member of Shackleton’s British Antarctic Expedition (1907-09), led his own Australasian Antarctic Expedition (1911-14), and then led the British, Australia, New Zealand Antarctic Research Expedition (BANZARE, 1929-30, 1930-31). These diaries are an uncensored record of events which reveal Mawson’s innermost thoughts at times of great stress and conflict on ship and shore, through achievement and failure, joy and tragedy. Photographer Frank Hurley shared three of Mawson’s expeditions. This is a rich resource of original material. Conrad pg.206, Renard 790, Rosove 219.A3.
