Detailed Product Description
New York, Doubleday & Co. 1972. 288 pp, profusely illustrated with photographs and reproductions both b/w and color. 
Hardcover with dust jacket. Jacket may be chipped, book is fine. Near Fine to Fine condition.

This is the story of the historic voyage of HMS Challenger sailing from Portsmouth in 1872 on a voyage that would last a thousand days and circumnavigate the world as the ship covered over 68,000 nautical miles. Challenger was a three-masted corvette with auxiliary steam power and she carried with her a team of scientists sponsored by the British Government and organized by the Royal Society in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh. Its ambitious purpose was to chart the depths, movement and contents of the seas, study marine life and minerals, and to look for clues to climactic phenomena. The voyage was an unqualified success. The author describes the expedition and the remote places visited by a team of scientists led by Prof Wyville Thomson.
