The items in the catalogue run in roughly chronological order. All of the official accounts from the period 1921-1953 appear, later memoirs being grouped with the relevant expeditions. It includes journal articles and literature, not least because these were the media in which the earliest notices of many expeditions were published. Similarly, postcards, leaflets, posters, as well as signed and other manuscript material, are included as a reflection of the contemporary interest in the subject.
