Description :First Edition. Barrow, second secretary to the Admiralty, was one of the prime instigators of the renewal of arctic exploration in the nineteenth century. With Banks and Scoresby, he urged that full advantage be taken of the exceptional break-up of ice in 1817, and he was largely responsible for the re-enactment of legislation granting rewards for the discovery of the North-West passage and for sailing within one degree of the North Pole.
This chronological history of arctic exploration, relating the discoveries of Frobisher, Weymouth, Hudson, Munk, Fox, James, Hearne, Cook, and Mackenzie, ends with the departure of the Buchan and Ross expeditions of 1818, the plans of which were proposed by Barrow. Appended are Mr. Buchanís Expedition into the Interior of Newfoundland (1810) and A Relation of the Discovery of the Strait of Anian by Capt. Lorenzo Ferrer Maldonado (1588).
