Journal of a Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage From the Atlantic tot he Pacific; Performed in the Years 1819-1820, in His Majesty's Ships Hecla and Griper, Under the Orders of William Edward Parry, R. N., F. R. S., and Commander of the Expedition [Bound With] The North Georgia Gazette, and Winter Chronicle.

Sir William Parry (1790-1855) was a famous English rear-admiral and Arctic explorer.  This is a first hand account of his most successful voyage to find the North-West Passage.  They sailed through Parry Channel and wintered on Melville Island.  No one else would reach so far west until 1850.  While they were ice bound on Melville Island, the crew produced a newspaper, the North Georgia Gazette and Winter Chronicle, in order to entertain and inform the crew.  The original journal and the newspapers are reproduced in this volume, first published in 1821.  Attractive professional modern binding.  A vital chronicle of Arctic exploration.
