Beschreibung:

Two volumes complete, 8vo, [text block 213 x 140mm], nice mid-twentieth century? green half morocco over green cloth covered baords, the sides and corners gilt ruled, the flat spines divided into compartments with gilt double fillets, lettered direct in two compartments, small gilt leaf in remaining four compartments, text block edges marbled. VOLUME 1: frontispiece, large folding chart, 39 text illustrations (1 map, 7 full-page), xvi, 324pp. VOLUME 2: 1 chart, 60 text illustrations (11 full-page), xii, 352pp. Spines very slightly faded; endpapers a little spotted; ink numbers on verso of both title-pages; large folding map a little browned with a few small tear in folds without loss; else a very good set of this scarce work. Hall discovered , 'some actual relics of the expedition of Martin Frobisher' three centuries earlier and 'made deductions in favour of yet discovering some of the survivors of Sir John Franklin's expedition.' Charles Francis Hall (1821-71) was an American Arctic explorer. Around 1857, he became interested in the Arctic and spent the next few years studying the reports of previous explorers and trying to raise money for an expedition, primarily intended to learn the fate of Sir John Franklin's lost expedition. Hall's first expedition in 1860–63 left New Bedford on the whaler 'George Henry' under Captain Sidney O. Budington, whose uncle James Budington had salvaged Edward Belcher's exploration ship HMS Resolute, also on the 'George Henry'. He got as far as Baffin Island, where he was forced to winter. The Inuit told Hall of surviving relics from Martin Frobisher's mining venture at Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island. Hall soon travelled there to see them first-hand, drawing upon the inestimable assistance of his newly found Inuit guides Ebierbing ("Joe") and Tookoolito ("Hannah"). He also learned what he interpreted as evidence that some members of Franklin's lost expedition might still be alive. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 56475
