Description

Matkin was a young assistant ship's steward on HMS Challenger when it sailed from Portsmith in 1872 for a three-and-a-half-year voyage of scientific exploration; he kept a journal, from which he wrote letters home. The letters, discovered in the early 1980s, provide an intimate look at life aboard; combined with the massive official reports, and the personal accounts by officers and scientists, they complete the most thorough documentation of a 19th-century scientific expedition.
