THE LINDA HALL LIBRARY HISTORY OF SCIENCE COLLECTION
The Novara Expedition 1857-1859
Eudyptes chrysocome (St. Paul Island)
der Österreichischen Fregatte Novara um die Erde in den Jahren
Unter den Befehlen des Commodore B. von Wüllerstorf-Urbair
Vienna: Gerold, 1861-75.
The zoologists serving
on the expedition, Georg Frauenfeld and Johann Zelebar, amassed
an impressive collection of natural history objects during the
voyage, including more than a thousand bird specimens.
These penguins were
observed on St. Paul Island, which lies in the middle of the
south Indian Ocean between the southern tip of Africa and the
southwest coast of Australia. Another island, named Amsterdam,
lies nearby to the north; together they create an isolated sanctuary
in the sea.
