Description

Excerpt from Report on the Scientific Results of the Voyage of H. M. S. Challenger, Vol. 1: During the Years 1873-76, Under the Command of Captain George S. Nares, R. N., F. R S. And the Late Captain Frank Tourle Thomson, R. N

Had the responsibility of the production of the Narrative of the Cruise rested with the same members of the Expedition from the commencement, a some what different method would probably have been followed in the preparation of this volume. The arrangement of the matter and the style have been largely determined by the circumstances arising out of the change of Captains during the Cruise, the unexpected death of Sir C. Wyville Thomson in 1882, and the necessity for publication before the completion of many of the special Reports.

It is hoped, however, that the volume will be found to contain a faithful record of the Work of the Expedition, and as complete an account of the scientific results as is possible in the present state of the investigations.
