Detailed Product Description
London, Merlin Press, 1989. 227 pp, b/w illustrations. New paperback.

In 1856 Lord Dufferin, a young Anglo-Irish peer, commissioned the schooner Foam and sailed to the Arctic. The lively style and humour of his account of the voyage won instant success and the book became a Victorian bestseller. The voyage was ambitious. Dufferin and his crew sailed first to Iceland, visiting Reykjavik (then a small and impoverished Danish colonial outpost) before undertaking an expedition into the interior of the country with its glaciers, volcanoes and geysers. Later they sailed on to higher latitudes, skirting the pack ice of the Arctic Ocean until they found a way through to Jan Mayen, then made their way east to northern Norway. From there, they made another foray into the pack-ice, touching Bear Island and Spitzbergen before returning home. - excerpted from the book cover
