A Sequel to the North-West Passage, and the Plans for the Search for Sir John Franklin

London: E. Stanford, 1860. 8vo. [4], 3, [1], 62, [6]pp. Map and folding plate.

Publisher's blue cloth, covers blocked in blind and gilt, yellow endpapers.

Rare separately-issued account of the Franklin search expedition of the Fox under McClintock.

Brown included this work as part of the second edition of his The North-West Passage, and the Plans for the Search for Sir John Franklin (London:1860). The present issue, however, is the very rare separately-issued first edition of the Sequel, unrecorded as such in Arctic Bibliography. An important work, as it includes an account of McClintock's explorations (1857-9) during which the first artefacts from the Franklin expedition were recovered.
