Journal of a second voyage for the discovery of a north-west passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific : performed in the years 1821-22-23, in His Majesty's ships Fury and Hecla by William Edward Parry( Book )

4 editions published in 1824 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After having made two trips to the Arctic in search of a Northwest Passage (one with Ross and one under his own charge), Parry was still convinced that a route existed out of Hudson's Bay. He set out on another expedition in the spring of 1821, this time with the ships Fury and Hecla. His instructions also included the possibility of meeting up with, and offering assistance to, John Franklin's overland expedition in the Coronation Gulf region. Parry sailed though Hudson Strait and Foxe Channel and into Frozen Strait, westward into Repulse Bay and then northward into Lyon Inlet. The expedition spent the winter at Winter Island, and thanks to Parry, the crew enjoyed much improved living conditions over what was typically known. Parry had modified the heating systems in the ships to reduce humidity, and replaced the sailor's cots with hammocks to allow for better air circulation. Parry organized entertainment for the men through the Royal Arctic Theatre, with plays every two weeks, and classes were organized for the men to learn to read and write. While at Winter Island, they were visited by a group of Inuit. The crew readily took an interest in the friendly visitors, and as a result, a considerable amount of information was collected and compiled on their nature and way of life. Captain Lyon's skilful drawings, depicting the Inuit in their traditional clothing, at work, on the hunt, and at play, became the basis for the illustrations used in Parry's published journal. When Parry was able to set sail again the next year, he resumed his voyage northward to discover and explore Fury and Hecla Strait, but owing to heavy ice, proceeded only to Igloolik Island off the northwest coast of Melville Peninsula where they spent the second winter. The following summer, Parry put an end to the expedition and headed back to England, arriving in October, 1823. The voyage, although not achieving its goal, shed light on a little-known region of the Arctic

Childe Harold's pilgrimage : a romaunt by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

6 editions published between 1841 and 1848 in English and German and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" is Lord Byron at his best-strumming all the right lyrical cords of the hearts of men and women. Byron was a man of his time--faults and all--but who used the literary art to rise above the common lot of aristocrats. Some beautiful excerpts would include "There is a pleasure in the pathless woods/There is a rapture on the lonely shore" or "To such as see thee not my words were weak; To those who gaze on thee, what language could they speak?" There is no better way to feel Byron's craft and the development of his soul and style than by reading "Child Harold's Pilgrimage," a lengthy narrative poem first published in the early 1800's and dedicated to "Ianthe", the term of endearment he used for Charlotte Harley (the artist Francis Bacon's great-great-grandmother). "Child Harold's Pilgrimage" describes the travels and reflections of a world-weary young man who, disillusioned with a life of pleasure and revelry, looks for distraction in foreign lands; in a wider sense, it is an expression of the melancholy and disillusionment felt by a generation weary of the wars of the post-Revolutionary and Napoleonic eras. The title comes from the term childe, a medieval title for a young man who was a candidate for knighthood

Travels in South America, during the years 1819-20-21 : containing an account of the present state of Brazil, Buenos Ayres, and Chile by Alexander Caldcleugh( Book )

4 editions published in 1825 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1825 and based on his diaries, this two-volume account by Alexander Caldcleugh (1795-1858) of his experiences in Brazil, Buenos Aires, and Chile portrays a diverse and changing continent. London-born Caldcleugh was posted to South America in 1819 as private secretary to the British minister at the Portuguese royal court (based in Brazil 1808-21). Following that two-year mission, he returned to South America in 1829 and remained there until his death. Caldcleugh's book appealed to the avid interest of European readers in the 'New World'. It was well-received upon publication and in 1826 was translated into German. With its close attention to geography, geology, politics, economics, culture and society in the region, and its description of an adventurous crossing of the Andes, the book is both a fine example of the nineteenth-century travel narrative and a document of colonial attitudes. Volume 1 focuses particularly on agriculture

Letters and journals of Lord Byron : with notices of his life by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

3 editions published in 1833 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Gordon Noel Byron, 6th Baron Byron of Rochdale (1788-1824) is one of the central writers of British Romanticism and his 'Byronic' hero - the charming, dashing, rebellious outsider - remains a literary archetype. But to what extent is this character a portrayal of the author himself? Byron was known for his extremely unconventional, eccentric character and his extravagant and flamboyant lifestyle: he had numerous scandalous love affairs, including a suspiciously close relationship with his half-sister Augusta Leigh. Lady Caroline Lamb, one of his lovers, famously described him as 'mad, bad and dangerous to know'. This two-volume work, compiled by his friend Thomas Moore, to whom Byron had given his manuscript memoirs (which he later burnt), was published in 1830. Volume 1 gives an account of Byron's early life, including his time as a star of the literary scene in London, and ends with his departure from the country in 1816
