Description
1856 1st ed Elisha Kane Arctic Explorations Voyages Franklin Expedition Map 2v



The Arctic Exploration, or ‘Advance,’ led by Elisha Kent Kane, was financed to find Sir John Franklin and his ship which was missing. While Franklin was never found, Kent and his explorers were able to gather a lot of information about people, geography, and natural history of the Arctic region, a relatively unknown region of the world. The discoveries found on this voyage include the Humboldt Glacier, Kennedy Channel, the Kane Basin, and reaching the farthest north of any exploration at the time.



Published just one year before Kent’s death, this first edition book was immensely popular shortly after it was first published and was “often compared to the Bible for wide dissemination of America’s bedside reading tables” (Books on Ice 3.9). This book includes engraved plates, maps, and many in-text illustrations of icebergs, ship scenes, animals, and portraits.
