FThe private journal of Captain G.F. Lyon of H.M.S. Hecla : during the recent voyage of discovery under Captain Parry, 1821-1823This is a vivid account of Arctic exploration in its most classical period. The journal clearly demonstrates the observant, warm-hearted personality of its chronicler, an officer of the Royal Navy, a man of sensibility and courage. Its accurate descriptions and thoughtful understanding of the Eskimo people make it almost unique as an early nineteenth-century document. George Francis Lyon appeared in the Arctic in the 1820's at the very height of the feverish quest for the Northwest Passage to the Orient. For over two centuries before Lyon's first journey in the Arctic on board the Hecla, more than two score of European ships with their daring crews had set out to discover a northern trade route to China. All had been lost or driven back by the power of the moving ice. The expedition of the Fury and Hecla from 1821-1823 was yet another venture that failed to navigate the narrow ice-choked passage to the western sea, but the observations of both Perry and Lyon, the leaders of the expedition, made considerable additions to the geographical and scientific knowledge of the eastern and central Arctic. -- from Introduction21514ocn004106051book18280.84Parry, William EdwardNarrative of an attempt to reach the North pole : in boats fitted for the purpose, and attached to His Majesty's ship Hecla, in the Year MDCCCXXVII, under the command of Captain William Edward Parry, R.N., F.R.S., and honorary member of the Imperial Academy of Sciences at St. Petersburg ; illustrated by plates and charts10717ocn070584139book18350.82Parry, William EdwardThree voyages for the discovery of a northwest passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific and narrative of an attempt to reach the North PolePortraitsVolume 2 of a 2 volume set.
