The Journey to the Polar Sea

£17.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Hardback in the Everymans Library series from J. M. Dent and Sons, reprinted 1924.

Sir John Franklin's account of the Journey to the Polar Sea was first published by Everyman in 1910, with a short introduction by Captain R. F. Scott. In 1819, Franklin was chosen to lead an expedition overland from Hudson Bay to chart the north coast of Canada eastwards from the mouth of the Coppermine River. 20 men set out in 1819, and only 11 returned in 1822. Franklin survived this expedition and lived another 25 years before his last, ill-fated arctic expedition.

Hardback, green boards, no dustjacket. The book is in good condition for its age, a little canted with some small marks and bumps to spine and back cover, top page ends are discoloured, but binding is sound, there is no inscription, and there is even a bookmark tucked in near the back advertising other Everyman editions.
