Description:
Two maps showing the Arctic and Antarctic regions with the state of exploration updated to 1900. The Duke of Abruzzi had achieved the farthest point North in April, while the Norwegian explorer Carsten Borchgrevink is marked as the farthest point South in February. The shape of the Antarctic continent is still largely speculative with only guesses as to its probably extent.
