The complete title of this book is; Narrative of the North Polar expedition. U.S. ship Polaris, Captain Ch. F. Hall commanding.
It was published in Washington, by the Government Printing Office., and contains one engraved portrait, one engraved frontispiece and 32 wood engraved plates including two that are tinted, and six maps. It is bound in its original green decorated cloth, with a nice large gilt vignette on the front board.
It describes a famous North Pole expedition with the ship Polaris, mainly to Grinnell Island and parts of Greenland. It is an account of Hall's third expedition during 1871-1873. The rescue of the crew is detailed in Markham's Whaling Cruise to Baffin's Bay (1874). Hall was an indefatigable Arctic Explorer and tried endlessly to discover a north-west passage and to determine the fates of the Franklin and Crozier Expedition. This expedition ended in calamity with the death of Hall on his return from Grinnell Island, but it was the most northerly point yet to be reached by any vessel. Boards a bit rubbed at edges and front board partially stained. Frontispiece detached and marginally damp-stained. One plate in photocopy, otherwise good..

Reference: Arctic Bibl. 18382.

    Het bestelde boek is meer dan een week onderweg geweest.
    Op het etiket bleek het huisnummer te ontbreken; oorzaak?
    Niet leverbaar volgens DPD, vreemd waarom werd het telefnr. Op het label niet gebeld?

    Beste klant, allereerst hartelijk dank voor de toch positieve feedback. En uiteraard onze excuses voor de vertraging van de levering. Dit boek was op de beurs in Maastricht, omdat Catawiki daar een stand had en mooie items had gevraagd aan ons. Uiteindelijk moesten wij toen de verzending laten uitvoeren door de collega’s van Catawiki, maar via onze account. Het boek werd derhalve niet vanuit ons eigen adres verstuurd en ergens is iets niet 100% goed gegaan. Iemand zei echter ook dat er wat algemene leverproblemen waren in die week. Al met al, heeft het langer geduurd dan de bedoeling was, wij zijn altijd enorm scherp met onze service (in al die jaren nog nooit één negatieve feedback gehad) en hopen het in een volgend geval goed te maken! En inderdaad, wij zetten altijd speciaal het tel. nr. op de verzendlabels, voor zulke gevallen, helaas nemen ze dan toch niet even die moeite... zonde! Met vriendelijke groeten, Bibliopola
