The last of the Arctic voyages : being a narrative of the expedition in H.M.S. Assistance under the command of Captian Sir Edward Belcher, C.B., in search of Sir John Franklin during the years 1852-53-54 by Edward Belcher( Book )

12 editions published between 1855 and 1975 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the experienced Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin (1786-1847) was put in command of an expedition in 1845 to search for the elusive North-West Passage he had the backing of the Admiralty and was equipped with two specially-adapted ships and a three-year supply of provisions. Franklin was last seen by whalers in Baffin Bay in July 1845. When the expedition failed to return in 1848, enormous resources were mobilised to try to discover its fate. In 1852 H.M.S. 'Assistance' was sent to lead another search mission. It was captained by Edward Belcher (1799-1877), who eventually took the decision to abandon four ships in the pack-ice. He recounts his unsuccessful adventure, defending his actions against critics

The natural history of Selborne by Gilbert White( Book )

5 editions published in 1877 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a compilation of 44 letters from White to zoologist Thomas Pennant, and 66 letters to Daines Barrington, a member of the Royal Society along with White. The original edition also included 26 letters on the antiquities, but it is his Natural History that has become an indispensable part of the Western Canon. White used these letters to document his meticulous observations of birds, plants and animals in the countryside around his home, at Selborne in Hampshire. He is often considered England’s first ecologist. This work is a classic not only for its value as an Enlightenment study of landscape and nature, but even more so for it being a great piece of literature, written in a style that is timeless, providing an atmosphere that is unmatched in its ability to pull the reader into the tranquil world around White’s home in the 18th century English countryside"--Books and Vines

Monograph on the fossil Reptilia of the London clay, and of the Bracklesham and other Tertiary beds by Richard Owen( Book )

12 editions published in 1849 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering a wide area of the London and Hampshire basins, the London Clay has been famous for over two hundred years as one of the richest Eocene strata in the country. In this work, first published between 1849 and 1858, Fellows of the Royal Society Richard Owen (1804-92) and Thomas Bell (1792-1880) describe their findings from among the reptilian fossils found there. The book is divided into four parts, covering chelonian, crocodilian, lacertilian and ophidian fossils, and includes an extensive section of detailed illustrations. Using his characteristic 'bone to bone' method and an emphasis on taxonomy, Owen draws some significant conclusions; he shows that some of Cuvier's classifications were wrongly extended to marine turtles, and adds to the evidence for an Eocene period much warmer than the present. The work is a fascinating example of pre-Darwinian palaeontology by two scientists later much involved in the evolutionary controversy
