British naval officer whose second Arctic expedition in search of the Northwest Passage, the North American waterway linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, located the north magnetic pole. On his second expedition, to what is now Canada’s Northwest Territories (1829,33), Ross discovered and surveyed Boothia Peninsula, King William Island, and the Gulf of Boothia. During a sledge journey in 1831, his nephew James Clark Ross located the magnetic pole. The following year the party’s ship was crushed in the ice. John Ross and his men were rescued by a whaler in the summer of 1833 and returned to England. In 1834 he was knighted. After serving as British consul at Stockholm from 1839 to 1846, in 1850 he undertook a third and unsuccessful voyage to the North American Arctic to find the lost explorer Sir John Franklin. He became a rear admiral in 1851. One of the ships of Franlin's expedition, the Terror or the Erubus has recently been located.

The colour lithograph plates are, with the exception of the view portfolios of Creswell, Browne and May, the most attractive illustrations to grace an Arctic narrative since the coloured aquatints of the earlier Ross and Franklin voyages. Belcher was forced to abandon four of his five ships to the pack-ice just off Melville Island. Over one year later an American whaler, one thousand miles south, in Davis Strait found the Resolute less the crew, drifting towards them. It was returned to the United States where it was sold to the American government; after restoration it was presented to the British government. When it was retired and stripped down, oak from its planking was used to make a desk which was presented to the American Government and it is still in use today in the White House. Halifax-born Belcher gained considerable distinction as a surveyor in the Royal Navy. He served on the western Arctic coastal survey in 1825-27, and subsequently headed surveys of the west coast of North and South America and in the South China Sea. In 1852, he was placed in command of an expedition of five ships (Resolute, Intrepid, North Star, Assistance and Pioneer) to search in the Canadian Arctic for Sir John Franklin, missing since 1845. Belcher records his sailing through Wellington Channel and discovery of Exmouth and North Cornwall Islands and the Belcher Channel leading to Jones Sound. Also described is the meeting and rescue of Commdr. Robert McClure of the Investigator on northern Banks Island by the western arm of the expedition under Henry Kellett. Belcher's decision to abandon four ships icebound in Wellington Channel in 1854 led to his court-martial, and despite his acquittal, he continued to be severely criticized in England. Weather and ice conditions are recorded through- out, as well as optical phenomena, natural history, scurvy, etc., and a summary of results of Franklin's search expeditions to date. Appended are several scientific reports on natural history: John Richardson's on fishes, J. . Salter on fossils, Lovell Reeve on shells, Thomas Bell on crustacea, etc. Seller Inventory # 37250
