Excerpt from The Antarctic Manual, for the Use of the Expedition of 1901

In November 1900 I was so fortunate as to secure the services of Mr. George Murray, as editor of such a manual. Mr. Murray entered fully into the Spirit of my plan, arranged the subjects that would require treatment, obtained the services of the eminent men of science who have contributed, and has edited the whole work.

In accordance with the plan, the manual consists of instructions and of memoirs containing information. In the instructions are included the Astronomical Data, and the papers on Tidal, Wave, Ice and Pendulum Observations, on Terrestrial Magnetism, Climate, the Aurora, Atmospheric Electricity, Geology, Volcanic Action, and Rock Collecting, and Botany. But these instructions include much suggestive information. Especially is this the case in Dr. Blanford's paper on Antarctic Geology.

In his Chemical and Physical Notes Mr. Buchanan properly assumes a due knowledge of routine operations on the part of the physicist. He therefore furnishes him, and the other observers, with observations by the way, as he calls the exceedingly valuable information and suggestions contained in his paper. It would not be easy to exaggerate the value of Mr. Buchanan's contribution.
