Detailed Product Description
London, MacMillan, 1879, 1st edition. 347 pp, b/w illustrations. Green cloth hardcover with gold spine letters, minor edge wear, VG-Near Fine. Has a bookplate from a library but there are no other marks, no spine mark, no pocket, no RSM's, etc.

Originally published in 1879, this illustrated work by Albert Hastings Markham (1841-1918) opens with accounts of Arctic exploration from the sixth to the nineteenth centuries, including the expeditions led by Constantine John Phipps (1744-92), William Edward Parry (1790-1855) and George Nares (1831-1915).

The journal of Thomas Floyd (c. 1754-78), who served as midshipman under Phipps in 1773, comprises the most significant part of the work. Outlining the difficulties faced by an eighteenth-century expedition, ranging from encounters with wildlife to adverse weather conditions, Floyd's narrative is notable also for its inclusion of some early episodes in the career of Horatio Nelson, also a midshipman on the voyage. More than a dozen engravings enhance the work.
