About This Item

Philadelphia: Childs & Peterson, 1856. First edition, 8vo, 2 vols., pp. 464; 467; engraved portrait and vignette half-title in each volume, 4 maps (2 folding), 18 beautifully engraved plates and approximately 265 other engraved illustrations in the text; publisher's brown blindstamped cloth, gilt spines; volume I slighly skewed, and with one small break at the top of the spine, else about fine. Under the auspices of the U.S. Navy, Kane set out in search of Franklin, who had not been heard from since 1847, to explore, and to make scientific investigations in the regions north of Smith Sound. While Kane came away empty-handed as far as information on Franklin was concerned, the expedition was of extreme importance for its scientific and geographical discoveries. Arctic Bibliography 8373; Sabin 36998.
