To get a sense of the richness of this resource, one need go no further than the "A" is, where one can find information on Arctic and Antarctic expeditions; Agassiz's cruises on the BLAKE; Albert I, Prince of Monaco's expeditions from 1889 to 1922; the Allan Hancock Atlantic Expeditions; and cruises of the ANTON DOHRN
