Detailed Product Description
New York, MacMillian, 1882, 1st US edition. 756 pp, 10 lithographed folding maps, two in color, 4 steel engraved portraits, 298 woodcuts. Green cloth hardcover with some wear and hinges weakened. Very Good condition.

Chronicles the first-ever complete crossing of the Northeast Passage in 1879, translated from the Swedish by Alexander Leslie.  A very detailed and copiously illustrated account of the Swedish Vega expedition to explore the Northeast Passage, setting out from Karlskrona in 1878 and sailing around the entire coast of Arctic Russia and Siberia to the Bering Strait, then circumnavigating Eurasia and returning to Stockholm in 1880. 

It relates the history of previous voyages of exploration and describes the life of the local peoples encountered and their tools and equipment. The final chapters relate the expedition's visits to countries visited on their return voyage, including Japan and Ceylon. 

Adolf Erik Nordenskild (1832-1901), scientist and Arctic explorer, was born in Helsinki but forced to leave Finland for political reasons and settled in Sweden after 1857. His interest in early cartography is reflected in the fine set of lithographed maps.
