A classic Arctic narrative. “The ship was crushed and finally sank June 12, 1881… Account of the subsequent search for the thirty-three men who left the ship, of whom twenty-five reached the Lena Delta, where De Long and eleven others perished.” – Arctic Bib. 3839, citing this 1884 edition, rather than the true American first edition, which was issued in 1883. This is a brilliant copy in original decorated cloth, showing only the slightest wear at spine ends. Two vols.
