Our latest online catalogue, Antarctic Exploration highlights a selection of manuscript and printed rarities from the 18th & 19th Century, including Cook, Kerguelen and Dumont D'Urville through to those from the heroic age of Antarctic exploration represented by Amundsen and Mawson. The highlights may be viewed here and the full online list here.
We also featured on our home page the rare hand-coloured edition of Jacques Arago's Souvenirs d'un aveugle. Seldom seen on the market, this should be ranked as one of the rarest and most prized Pacific or Australian colour-plate books.
