The voyage of the Vega round Asia and Europe : with a historical review of previous journeys along the north coast of the Old World by A. E Nordenskiöld( Book )

2 editions published in 1960 in Swedish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Finnish geologist and Arctic explorer A.E. Nordenski ld (1832-1901) spent much of his life in exile in Sweden, where he was made a baron. He served as Superintendent of the Mineralogical Department of the Swedish Royal Museum, and later became a Member of the Swedish Academy. Following a number of expeditions during the 1860s, he concluded that the North Pole could not be reached by ship, and in 1872 he tried unsuccessfully to reach it overland. A great historian of cartography, he amassed a huge collection of maps, now included in UNESCO's 'Memory of the World' Register. This two-volume work, published in Swedish in 1881, describes his most famous voyage, the first crossing of the North-East Passage. Volume 1 includes details of the flora, fauna, people and geology encountered on the journey from Tromso to the Bering Strait, along with a review of previous exploration in the region
