About this title


This book lluminates the nineteenth-century fascination--in Britain and the U.S.--with visual representations of the Arctic, from fine art to panoramas, engravings, magic lantern slides, and photographs. Drawing from letters, diaries, cartoons, and sketches, as well as ephemera such as newspaper advertisements, playbills, and program booklets, Potter shows how representations of the Arctic expressed the fascination, dread, and wonder that the region inspired, and continues to inspire today.

About the Author:

Russell Alan Potter is professor of English, Rhode Island College, and the editor of the Arctic Book Review.
