A host of reports containing interesting information were published for the Terra Nova expedition. Those by the Publications Committee, such as this one, 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. This volume of the Publications Committee focuses on aurora observations at Cape Evans and Cape Adare. This is an interesting addition to the other expedition publications. Scarce.
