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.
