A new voyage round the world in the years 1823-1826 by Otto von Kotzebue( Book )

18 editions published between 1830 and 1967 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kotzebue is now considered one of the most important Russian explorers of the Pacific. The first English edition of this important voyage appeared two years after its first publication in Russian in 1828. It contained "reliable evidence of the potential strategic and economic value of the Northwest region of North America, as well as indicating a growing Russian presence in this area, which alarmed some Englishmen" (Hill). Kotzebue's second voyage to the Pacific, made eight years after his highly successful first voyage, combined scientific exploration and discovery with the carrying of cargo to Kamchatka and furthering the interests of the Russian American Fur Company in Alaska and on the Northwest Coast. The winter of 1824 was spent in California and Hawaii, and the narrative provides an extensive account of the Fort Ross settlement, as well as a description of San Francisco Bay. The expedition also visited Brazil, Chile, the Society Islands, Pitcairn, Micronesia, and Alaska."--abebooks website

A voyage of discovery, into the South Sea and Beering's Straits, for the purpose of exploring a north-east passage by Otto von Kotzebue( )

16 editions published between 1821 and 2013 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An admirer of Captain Cook, Otto von Kotzebue (1787-1846) was a leading navigator, in Russian service, circumnavigating the globe three times. His 1815 expedition set out to find a passage through the Arctic, study the coastlines of Kamchatka and Alaska, and explore the Pacific. Among the personnel were the naturalist Chamisso and the artist Choris, who both contributed valuable information to the published account, while Eschscholtz, a physician, collected zoological specimens. Originally published in 1821 in Russian and German, this English translation, presented with many plates and charts, appeared the same year and formed part of Darwin's library aboard the Beagle. Volume 3 continues with Chamisso's detailed observations as well as contributions by other members of the expedition. Flora and fauna are identified, mineral samples taken, and aerometric readings recorded along with the temperature of the sea

4 editions published in 2004 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vom Paradies zur Unwirtlichkeit: Von Kotzebue gelingt mit diesem Bericht über seine mehrjährige Reise - in die Südsee und von dort via Beringstrasse Richtung Norden - etwas, was wohl wenigen seiner Zeitgenossen so gelingen würde: Er berichtet nämlich über die angetroffenen Völker nicht mit Verachtung und Spott, sondern würdigt ihre den Umständen entsprechende Lebensweise. Ebenso kritisiert er die unglücklichen "Ereignisse", die die christliche Missionierung in diese Regionen brachte (Krankheiten, Aussterben etc.). Also ein sympathischer Reisemann, der durch seine aufgeschlossene Art auch viele wertvolle Informationen in sein russisches Heimatland zurückbringen konnte. Ein sehr interessanter und spannender Reisebericht, der - wie in dieser Reihe üblich - mit einem ebenso informativen Vorwort versehen ist. Alles in allem ein sehr guter und schöner Band! Ab 12 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Urs Geissbühler
