Detailed Product Description
London, C. Kegan Paul, 1881. 377 pp, b/w illustrations, frontis, 2 folding maps. Original royal blue decorated boards, spine lettered in gilt, chocolate brown end papers. Spine is lightly faded and cover is a bit worn, else remarkably nice condition. Scarce. Near Fine.

A first-hand account of the Isbjörn's voyage to Novaya Zemlya, a Russian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean, in search of the ideal route to the North Pole, which Markham was convinced could be achievable in the summer months, with observations on ice conditions, animals and birds. Admiral Sir Albert Hastings Markham's illustrious career included helping to suppress the South Sea island slave trade; achieving in 1876 the highest altitude yet attained at the time, by sledge-party in the Arctic; and meticulously documenting Pacific gulls - Markham's Storm Petrel was named in his honor. A copy of this book was included in the onboard collection, the National Antarctic Expedition Library, which Captain Scott took on his Discovery expedition of 1901-04.
