Admiralty Sailing Directions are books of navigational guidance, each volume covering a specific area. Volume 9 covers the Antarctic, and you would need the edition current at the time Shackleton was there. You would also need the relevant Admiralty charts of the time. UK Hydrographic Office has an archive which you can search on-line: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-ukho-archive#research & if you wish research visits can be arranged (all details on the website).
