Reference #: 1348
List Price: $20.00
University of Philadelphia Press, Philadelphia, 1965. 220 pp.; illustrations; Index and Bibliography. Fine in price-clipped dj. Includes excerpts from the original Journal of Dr. Kane (Stanford University Library) and his Report to the Secretary of the Navy, October 11, 1855. “This book is based on a hitherto unknown manuscript by Johan Carl Christian Petersen, a member of the second American Grinnell arctic exploring expedition which attempted to reach the North Pole by way of northern Greenland during the years 1853-1855. Petersen’s private journal is of special interest, since his account of the voyage differs appreciably from the versions given in the published works of Elisha Kent Kane, the commander of the expedition, and of Isaac Israel Hayes, second in command.”
