Fifty-two sedimentary rock specimens of the Beacon Sandstone formation of South Victoria Land, Antarctica, have been examined petrographically. Gould, geologist of the Byrd Antarctic Expedition, 1928-30, collected 27 specimens in the Queen Maud Mountains. Fifteen duplicate specimens have been studied of those collected in situ in the Ferrar Glacier district by the National Antarctic Expedition, 1901-04. Ten duplicate specimens, mainly erratics from the Priestley Glacier moraine, Terra Nova Bay district, collected by the British Antarctic (Terra Nova) Expedition, 1910-13, have also been examined. Preliminary petrographical notes have been published by Prior (9) on five of the specimens collected by the National Antarctic Expedition.
