Notes

Four maps showing Graham Land over the period 1934-1937 as surveyed by the British Graham Land Expedition of 1934-1937 led by John Rymill. The first map shows the routes taken by Bellingshausen (i.e. Bellinsgauzen) (1821), Larsen (1893), 'Belgica' (1898), Nordenskiold (1902), Charcot (1909), Wilkins (1928-29), 'William Scoresby' (1929), and 'Discovery II' (1931). The other maps show the routes taken by sledge, aeroplane or the schooner Penola in the exploration of Graham Land by Rymill's Expedition. Limited relief is shown on the second and fourth maps by contours.
