Kauffman, Jean-Paul.  
The Arch Of Kerguelen.

Publisher: Four Walls Eight Windows New York.

Isolated French Islands in the Southern Indian Ocean were the site for the Arch of Kerguelen, a stone vault that stunned navigators for years. It appears as an entry to a crypt - it leads to the forlorn world that is the Kerguelens. First discovered in 1772, they were deemed too depressing to bother going ashore. Not accessible by air, traveling for one week by ship is the only way. First Printing Hard Cover
