The Voyage of the Belgica 1897-99 in 3D

Author(s): Antarctic

Copyright: 2009
Specifications: CD
Condition: new

Roald Amundsen’s personal collection of stereo lantern slides from the Belgica Expedition. The voyage of the Belgica is one of the most fascinating of the early Antarctic Expeditions, and probably the least comfortable one to have taken part in. It became the first expedition to winter in Antarctica and a training ground for a number of the crew members who later became internationally acknowledged experts in their fields. Among the officers was Roald Amundsen, who would later to be the first man to sail the NW Passage and also to reach the South Pole. Frederick A. Cook, the expedition’s doctor and photographer, took a series of stereo photographs during the voyage. Amundsen owned a large collection of these photographs. After his death in 1928, this collection was inherited by Leon Amundsen, Roald’s brother. In 2008, Leon Amundsen’s family donated the Belgica photo collection to the Fram Museum in Oslo, Norway. This CD contains a slideshow consisting of 85 3D photos taken during the expedition and a pair of 3D glasses. Requires PowerPoint Viewer, a free Microsoft download.
