Scientific Results from the Antarctic Walk Environmental Research Expedition 1991-1993

Tokyo: Antarctic Environmental Research Expedition Organizing Committee, 1995. Unpaginated preliminaries, 258p., illustrated with line maps, with b&w photography (snow surfaces a favorite, plus team members using the special devices that allow one to take a sub-zero crap), tables and graphs, and many mysterious numbers. Hardbound in 10x7 inch green papered boards titled gilt. Corner-tips a little turned, the front free endsheet is clipped neatly (excising a name?), absolutely clean and sound, a very good copy.

From abstruse snow effects, to excrement disposal. Find a substantial chapter on dreams: for instance the trek's captain had 106 dreams, some re his own reputation, some on money, women, eating, foreign countries where climate is severe, the walk itself.
