Printed By Order Of The Trustees Of The British Museum 1930.

Following the return of the surviving crew from the voyage of the Quest, during which Shackleton lost his life, the expedition's financier presented the natural history collections to the British Museum.
The geological collections made relating to South Georgia were so considerable and important that the museum's director of natural history, Charles Tate Regan, undertook to collect the reports into the present volume.
