"James Clark Ross (1800-1862) was an explorer who served in the Royal Navy... By 1839 he found himself on the opposite side of the world in the Antarctic, with Joseph Dalton Hooker as his on-board naturalist. This two-volume account of the four-year voyage was published in 1847. Ross' findings led him to the conclusion that there was life on the sea floor to at least 730 metres, and the work is an important contribution to the development of oceanography and scientific knowledge about the Antarctic. Volume 1 covers Ross' journey from England to the Antarctic Circle, detailing the oceanic and climatic observations along the way. Volume 2 continues the story of the expedition, which eventually reached 78°S, and discovered the deep bay in the southern ocean now called the Ross Sea."--Publisher note
