Detailed Product Description
The Contemporary Publishing Company, New York, 1893, 1st edition. 241 pp, 4 color plates, 18 black and white plates, and black and white photographs and maps throughout. Small hardcover with gold and red letters on handsome linen covered boards, book has a slant and is soiled, but is otherwise Very Good inside and out

Josephine Diebitsch (1863-1935) married the sailor and Arctic explorer Robert Peary (1856-1920) on 11 August 1888, and accompanied him on three Arctic expeditions. My Arctic Journal recounts Josephine's experiences during the second, trans-Greenland expedition (1891-1892), during which she accompanied her husband on the journey to his Arctic base camp and spent twelve months on the shores of McCormick Bay at 77 N (i.e. halfway between the Arctic Circle and the North Pole), where she was the first Caucasian woman that the residents of a nearby Inuit settlement had seen. 

Robert then left her for his three-month crossing of North Greenland which he describes in 'The Great White Journey', the final chapter of the volume (pp. 221-240) before they returned to Philadelphia in September 1892. Josephine's last chapter ('Greenland Revisited', pp. 211-220) is headed 'Anniversary Lodge, Bowdoin Bay, Greenland, August 20, 1893' and describes the couple's arrival in Greenland in the summer of 1893 at the beginning of their third expedition. 

In September 1893, Josephine would give birth to their daughter Marie Ahnighito Peary, who was the first Caucasian child born in the Arctic and was nicknamed 'The Snow Baby'.
