Davis, U.S.N., Rear-Admiral C. H. (ed)  
Narrative of the North Polar Expedition, U. S. Ship Polaris, Captain Charles Francis Hall Commanding
 Picture
Publisher: Government Printing Office , 1876 Washington, DC.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "It appears from the letters and papers of Captain Hall, purchased by the Government from his widow and now in possession of the Navy Department, that the expedition of the Polaris to the Arctic regions originated with him and was carried into execution according to his own plans. During two prolonged residences among the Esquimaux - a period, to use his own language, of 'about eight years' - he repeatedly speaks of his desire and purpose to lead such an expedition. Indeed, as far back as the beginning of the year 1963, in a letter written to Mr. L. J. Cist, of Saint Louis, shortly after his return from his first expedition, he says: 'My third voyage to the Arctic regions will be for discovery, to the norther axis of the great globe.' This resolution he steadily maintained until the opportunity presented itself for carrying it into execution...It appears that Captain Hall, in single-minded devotion to the cause of Arctic exploration, is worthy to be placed by the side of Parry, FRanklin and Kane. This devotion was not merely a sentiment; on the contrary, during his long residence among the Esquimaux, his constant aim was to qualify himself for this service by adopting, throughout, the Esquimaux mode of life; by habituating himself to their manners and customs; and by acquiring a practical knowledge of the geography of the Arctic regions and of the native mode of traveling. On his return from this region in 1869, he immediately began, by lecturing in various parts of the United States, to mature a public opinion favorable to his enterprise. After lecturing in New York, Brooklyn, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and several other cities as far west as Indianapolis, he went to Washington and commenced those efforts which terminated successfully in procuring the appropriation granted by Congress for the Polaris Expedition." Illustrated with 59 full-page steel and wood engravings; two photolithographs, and six maps. 696 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Schley, Commander W. S. and Soley, J. R.  
The Rescue of Greely
 Picture
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1885 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Greely was the leader of a scientific expedition to the Arctic comprised of twenty-five men. After being stranded for three years, six survivors of the expedition were rescued by a Relief Expedition commanded by Commander W. S. Schley, U.S.N. "The history of the rescue of Greely and the other survivors of his party would hardly be complete without some account of the original expedition to Lady Franklin Bay, and of the two voyages undertaken for its relief before it left Discovery Harbor. In giving this account, it has been the aim of the writers to describe the events simply as they occurred, and studiously to avoid all criticism of those who took part in them. The facts are to be found for the most part in the voluminous testimony taken before the Court of Inquiry, and in the reports and official correspondence anne3xed to the proceedings of the Court. The history of the Circumpolar Stations is chiefly derived from the Mittheilungen published from time to time by the International Polar Commission. The illustrations in the book are from photographs taken during the voyage of the Relief Expedition of 1884, the negatives having been further treated by Mr. M. P. Rice, of Washington, before impressions were made. The writers desire to express their obligations for the assistance given them by various officers of the Relief Squadron, in the preparation of the latter part of the work." 5 fold-out maps. Illustrated. viii + 277 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Book plate from library on inside front cover; card pocket on inside rear cover, but no other library markings. No dust jacket.
