About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Narrative of a Second Voyage in Search of a North-West Passage, and of a Residence in the Arctic Regions During the Years 1829, 1830, 1831, 1832, 1833 by ROSS, Sir John.

Description:

Two volumes, quarto. Errata leaf. Twenty-nine plates (one with two images) including frontispiece, nine of which in color (three being mezzotints with hand coloring). Modern cloth-backed boards, printed paper spine labels, untrimmed. After Ross's disastrous voyage of 1818, the Admiralty refused to allow him to lead another Arctic expedition until 1829. With assistance from gin magnate Felix Booth and with contributions by Ross himself, he commanded the steam vessel Victory with his nephew James Clark Ross as second in charge. In searching for a passage south from Regent's inlet, the Victory was stopped by ice, and Ross and his men spent the winter of 1829-1830 in Felix harbor. In the summer of 1830, the ship made some progress and got a few miles further south to winter in Victoria harbor. But there it remained stuck in the ice, and in May 1832 was abandoned. Ross and his men made their way to Fury Beach, where they passed yet another winter in a hut built from the wreck of the Fury and managed to survive by eating an Inuit diet. In the summer of 1833, they succeeded in reaching Ross's old ship, the Isabella, in Lancaster Sound and used it to return to England. The voyage, remarkable for the length of time spent in the ice, yielded much in the way of scientific observations, including information on natural history, meteorology, navigation, and ethnology. James Clark Ross was also able to discover the Magnetic North Pole. Abbey Travel 636; Arctic Bibliography 14866; Field 1321; Hill 1490; Lande 1426; NMM 850; Sabin 73381; Staton & Tremaine/TPL 1808.
