A host of reports containing interesting information were published for the Terra Nova expedition. Those by the Publications Committee, thirteen volumes, focused on the physical and physiographical material and observations. Those by the Trustees of the British Museum focused on biological and geological results. A history of the expedition was to have been published as well but the interruption of the war caused this to be delayed by which time those by Scott, Taylor, Evans, Priestley, and Cherry-Garrard had already been published. Scarce.

There were four Physiography reports published (Beardmore Glacier, McMurdo Sound, Robertson Bay and Terra Nova Bay, and Ross Archipelago). These physical geography reports with their wonderful maps make a great accompaniment to the other expedition literature as they provide details regarding the surrounding terrain where the expedition lived and worked. Scarce.
