It was written in a notebook with the name 'Campbell's Scribbling Diary' and the text 'for 1880' has been hand altered to 'for 1884.' The words 'SS Nova Zembla' have been added above the name 'Campbell.' The cover is of a faded green with a red veined marble effect. The interior includes pen-and-ink drawings and a day-by-day account of the voyage from the surgeon's point of view.
