    Campbell illustrates a visit to Hammerfest and the North Cape made in the Autumn of 1865 and travels he made in Scotland for geological interest in the following years.

    There are several printed pamphlets by Campbell which have been inserted at various places throughout the volume: ‘Notes on the Stature of the Lapps’ (London, 1866) (folio 53), “Rough Night`s Quarters” (Edinburgh, 1866) (folio 75), ‘A Method of Converting Collodion Negatives into Positives’ (Liverpool, 1858) (folio 162) and ‘On a New Self-Registering Sun-Dial’ (London, 1859) (folio 166).

    There are also a few letters to Campbell from miscellaneous correspondents, 1864, and undated.
