The (only) Dutch polar expedition 1882-1883 was a scientific undertaking that would visit Port Dikson in Siberia within the context of the first International Polar Year. Due to the thick ice, the expedition led by Dr. Maurits Snellen was unable to reach Dikson, but observations were made on the frozen Kara Sea. After wintering in a pre-fab house on the ice and the sinking of the Varna expedition ship, the whole team - 23 men with sledges and sloops - set off for the south. After a month of hard work they arrived at Vaygach Island and were finally picked up by a ship. They returned safely to civilization on 1 September, in Hammerfest.
A unique and rather rare report of the first and only Dutch polar expedition, certainly in this beautiful edition with gilt print.
