Stielers Hand-Atlas began in the the mid-1800 and issued new editions were issued as the maps changed. This was especially true for Antarctica. This map shows the tracks of the voyages of Cook, Wilkes, Ross, Bellinghause, Balleny, Brisco, Scotia and Scott's 'Discovery' and British land expeditions on the Ross ice shelf. The last expedition track was for the Robert Falcon Scott "Discovery" expedition of 1901-04. This was Scott's first Antarctic expedition and was notable for the science and discovery of the Queen Victoria Land coast and of the area around McMurdo Sound, Mt. Terror and Erebus, Cape Crozier and the Ross Ice shelf coast along the Trans-Antarctic mountains. They were also searching for routes to the Polar Plateau and the South Pole and reached the furthest south in 1902 of 82 17'S.
