All scetches and water colours presented here, are printed in the book."My cousin, H. E. Conway, came as the artist of the expedition. He worked industriously and with no little skill in most uncomfortable surroundings and ungenial weather. The present volume contains many of his notes, whilst his sketches in water-colour and oil have already been exhibited to the public." (From "The First Crossing of Spitsbergen" 1897 -pg. 10)"I asked Conway's leave to visit this [Dickson] bay while he was occupied with others of his party in crossing to Agardh Bay. This leave he most kindly gave. His cousin, H. E. Conway, the artist to the expedition, was also to come; at least until we found a place for an artist's studies. (...) Conway with admirable perseverance managed to make a sketch in oils despite of the wet." (pg. 239-40)"Not a little of the memory of a very happy time I owe to the unfailing cheeriness and good fellowship, under often dull conditions, of our artist H. E. Conway, my friend and companion at the Flower-Garden." (p. 251).
