About this Item

First edition, 8vo, 2 vols., pp. 464 & 467 pp., engraved portrait and vignette half-title in each volume, 4 maps, 2 folding, 18 beautifully engraved plates and approximately 265 other engraved illustrations in the text; orig. brown cloth gilt; spine ends and extremities rubbed and slightly cracked, some foxing, else very good. Under the auspices of the U.S. Navy, Kane set out in search of Franklin, who had not been heard from since 1847, to explore, and to make scientific investigations in the regions north of Smith Sound. While Kane came away empty-handed as far as information on Franklin was concerned, the expedition was of extreme importance for its scientific and geographical discoveries.
