Western Franz Josef Land, 1899. Artist: Unknown
Western Franz Josef Land, 1899. Map showing discoveries and sledge journeys from 1894 to 1897. From an account of the Jackson-Harmsworth Expedition to Franz-Josef Land in the Arctic. The three-year expedition established that Franz Josef Land was in fact a small archipelago rather than a land mass that extended to the North Pole, as its leader, Frederick George Jackson, had believed. A print from A Thousand Days in the Arctic, by Frederick G Jackson, Volume II, Harper & Brothers, London, 1899.

'H.M.S. 'Challenger', commissioned for her four years' cruise on Deep Sea Exploration, 1872', (1901). 'Challenger', a steam-assisted warship of the Royal Navy, was used for the Challenger Expedition of 1872-1876, a British scientific mission which took naturalists and oceanographers on a grand tour of the world, covering 68,000 nautical miles (125,936 km). The crew collected samples and was the first to sound the deepest part of the ocean, laying the foundation of oceanography as a science. From "The Illustrated London News Record of the Glorious Reign of Queen Victoria 1837-1901: The Life and Accession of King Edward VII. and the Life of Queen Alexandra". [London, 1901]
