Volume 1 includes an account Of the log books and reports of the navigators, and Volume 2 deals with the journal of Steller, which throws much light on the second expedition and furnishes valuable scientific data. In the translation the terminology of the navigators has been retained and their ideas faithfully rendered in so far as it was possible, considering that their penmanship was not always legible, nor their language grammatical, nor their expressions intelligible. With these original data before him the reader is in a position to form an independent conclusion respect ing the controversies raging around this voyage. This book is not the last word on the subject, and it is hoped that other investi gators will use its material to make further studies in the field.
