Abstract

In the proceedings of the Royal Society of New South
Wales, Vol. XXIX., page 461, et seq., appears a paper,
read in 1895, on Antarctic Rocks collected by Mr. C. E.
Borchgrevink.
The authors are Professor David, Messrs. W. F.
Smeeth, and J. A. Schofield. A brief summary of this
valuable paper will be interesting, more especially as
since then there has been donated to the Tasmanian
Museum a small collection of Antarctic rocks and
minerals.
The paper mentioned is sub-divided into two parts :
I. Introductory notes about Antarctica,
II. Petrology of the rocks collected by Mr. C. E.
Borchgrevink.
