    The volumes reflect, in his detailed descriptions, watercolours and sketches, Campbellā€™s interest in people, art, science and sport. In the later journals, his interest in geology and meteorology predominates, with particular emphasis on the effects of glaciation observed in various countries.

    The sketches usually occur in chronological sequence with notes below each giving the date, place and other additional information.
