This is a New Testament and the Discourses of Epictetus, both belonging to Larry Gould. Gould recalled in later writings that he believed the expedition's library was "the most important single source of recreation," and that "As for myself, had the winter night given me opportunity for no other reading than Romain Rolland's "Jean Christophe" and Galsworthy's "Forsyte Saga" in its entirety I should still have considered it well spent."
