The Heart of the Antarctic, Illustrated by Ernest Shackleton. The scientific results of the expedition cannot be stated in detail in this book. The expert members in each branch have contributed to the appendices articles which summarise what has been done in the domains of geology, biology, magnetism, meteorology, physics, &c. I will simply indicate here some of the more important features of the geographical work. The journey made by the Northern Party resulted in the attainment of the South Magnetic Pole, the position of which was fixed, by observations made on the spot and in the neighborhood, at latitude 72° 25' South, longitude 155° 16' East. The journey was made along coastline of Victoria Land, new peaks, glaciers and ice-tongues were discovered, and small islands. Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton (1874–1922) was an Anglo-Irish polar explorer who led three British expeditions to the Antarctic, and one of the principal figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.
