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.
