ROSS, John. 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. Phila.: E.L. Carey & A. Hart, 1835. 1st American ed. xxii,456pp. Hand-colored folding map. 19th-century 3/4-calf and marbled boards, brown morocco spine labels. Light scattered foxing, small tears at folds of map, else a very good copy. Sabin 73381. Despite the failure of his earlier trip in 1818, Ross set out in 1829 in the small ship, Victory, to find a northwest passage, but the vessel had to be abandoned in 1832. Ross and his party were eventually rescued in the summer of 1833 in Lancaster Sound. In the meantime, Captain George Black had set out in search of Ross. His account of his explorations was published the year after this volume appeared. The greatest scientific yield of the trip was the discovery of the Magnetic Pole. Bookseller Inventory # 62601
