"Karte von der deutschen Südpolarexpedition"

Wood engraving made after lithogrphed map, 1905.

The German South Pole Expedition under commander Erich von Drygalski (1865-1949) was actually named "Gauss-Expedition". Gauss was a sail ship. The expedition took place between 1901-1903. It was the first German Antarctic expedition.

The "Gauss" was named after Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855), who was the first scientist to understand and publish his findings about the earth-magnetic significance of the South Pole and the exact location of the magnetic South Pole.

Drygalski published a report documenting this expedition. It consisted of 20 volumes and was written and published between 1905 and 1931.

The black line on this litho map traces the route of the "Gauss".

Light age toning. The article around it and on reverse side is not complete. But it has only journalistic significance.

Diameter of map: 10,8 cm (ca. 4.3")
