The three voyages of Martin Frobisher, in search of a passage to Cathaia and India by the North- west, A.D. 1576-8 by George Best( Book )

69 editions published between 1867 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This account of Frobisher's voyages in search of the North-West Passage in the sixteenth century was compiled in 1867 from the first edition of Hakluyt's Voyages (1589) with additional manuscript documents. The southern areas of the New World having been claimed by Spain and Portugal, British and Dutch sailors took the lead in exploring the North Atlantic, both in search of profit from the lands first discovered by Cabot in 1500, but also in an effort to find an alternative route to the East

Copper Inuit : ND08( )

in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Copper Inuit occupied the coastal and adjoining inland regions of much of Victoria Island and the opposite shores of the Canadian Arctic mainland. They had no name for themselves as a group, so the identification of these people as a group is a Western construct based on their association with deposits of copper. This file consists of 38 documents with a time coverage from prehistoric times up to the 1990s

Journal of HMS Enterprise, on the Expedition in Search of Sir John Franklin's Ships by Behring Strait, 1850-55 by Richard Collinson( )

1 edition published in 1889 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published posthumously in 1889, this journal records the 1850-5 expedition undertaken by naval officer and navigator Sir Richard Collinson (1811-83) to attempt to discover the fate of Sir John Franklin's expedition by entering the hypothetical North-West Passage from the 'other side', via Bering Strait. Franklin, the famous Polar explorer, disappeared on an expedition to discover the Passage in 1845, and no fewer than thirty attempts were made between 1847 and 1859 to investigate what had happened to his 129-strong party. Collinson set out in command of HMS Enterprise in 1850, and his ship, which passed three successive winters in the Arctic, came closest to the place where Franklin's expedition was believed to have ended. Collinson was awarded a Gold Medal by the Royal Geographical Society in 1858 for making a significant contribution to the geographical knowledge of the area, and he was knighted in 1875
