Some 25 or so of these images were published in Amundsen's account of the expedition (The South Pole) and several more in biographies of the explorer. Many of Amundsen's own photographs, taken with a large tripod camera, proved to be damaged when they were developed in Hobart. The record of the Polar journey itself is from Olav Bjaaland's folding pocket Kodak, the only camera carried on the southern journey. The lantern slides remain extremely rare survivals and it seems about half of the images have not been widely seen since the public lantern slide lectures undertaken by Amundsen on his return from the expedition. For a selection of lantern slides from Amundsen's collection, , many tinted, and including damaged examples, see R. Huntford (ed.), The Amundsen Photographs, London and New York, 1987. A 30-page booklet "The Discovery of the South Pole - Capt. Amundsen's expedition: a lecture ... to accompany ... lantern slides, etc." was written by Arthur Chater, the translator of Amundsen's narrative, and published by Newton & Co.o. in 1912 to accompany these lantern slides, which appear to have been produced in small numbers.
