De Long, Emma Wotton

xxiii, 252 pp. b/w plates.
First edition. Written by the widow in her eighty-seventh year, based on a trunk full of letters from the “Jeanette” expedition. As Vilhjalmur Stefansson points out in his lengthy and detailed introduction, this account sheds new light on some aspects of De Long’s tragic Arctic adventure. Scarce. Bound in original blue cloth. Spine sunned, else very good condition.
