Narrative

in S Brabant Island, bounded to N by a line joining Fleming Point and the head of Hippocrates Glacier, and to S by the isthmus E of Duperré Bay, rising to 1520 m at Galen Peak and including also Mount Ehrlich, Celsus Peak, Cook Summit and Mount Imhotep. The E coast of Brabant Island was roughly charted by BeAE, 24-29 January 1898, when the name Monts Solvay was applied to mountains along the whole length of this coast, after Ernest Solvay (1838-1922), the first patron of BeAE (Lecointe, map, 1899; 1900a, map facing p.132). Monte Solvay, presumably referring to the highest mountain
