'In 1736 Gerhard Müller… uncovered in Yakutsk reports briefly describing a voyage in 1648 from the Arctic river, Kolyma, around a great rocky promontory to a point south of the Pacific river, Anadyr'. The reports were those of Semen Dezhnev, leader of the expedition and one of its 26 survivors. ...Müller published an account of the voyage in 1758 [which]… answered the long-standing question of the geographical relation between Asia and America, and became a factor in the sending to the north Pacific of Captain Cook to look for a northwest or northeast passage between Europe and the Pacific. …[this is] a drawing together and critical examination of the relevant documents and studies made of the voyage into a single and hopefully, balanced treatment of it and its participants…' Dj; near fine. stock#23365.
