First American edition. Former library copy, rebound with new endpapers, cloth spine & marbled boards, usual internal marks. Pages lightly soiled, Goodspeed catalog number in pencil on front endpaper. 1852 Hard Cover. 216 pp. Originally published in London by Longman, Brown, Green, & Longmans - this edition released in New York in the same year, without appendix. Arctic Bibliography 12899: Account, by the commander of the Pioneer, one of the tenders to the Resolute and Assistance, of the Franklin search expedition under Capt. H.T. Austin: the voyage by Baffin Bay, Lancaster Sound, Barrow Strait, the wintering at Griffith Island, and return. Includes informative notes on West Greenland Eskimos, negotiating the ice of northern Baffin Bay, ice conditions in the Canadian Arctic waters, hunting adventures, clothing, food and equipment (for sledge journeys and otherwise), carrier pigeons, the sledge journeys, arctic nature and winter recreations. Sabin 57760. Though Franklin and his crew were lost, the wide-ranging search for them led to more detailed mapping of the Canadian Arctic - Richard Cyriax notes in his study 'Sir John Franklin's Last Arctic Expedition' that the loss of the expedition probably added much more [geographical] knowledge than its successful return would have done.
