Arctic artist : the journal and paintings of George Back, midshipman with Franklin, 1819-1822 by George Back( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Back accompanied Sir John Franklin's tragic first Arctic land expedition and kept a lively record in prose and watercolor sketches. This is a reprint of the 1994 work which completed the editor's trilogy of the journals of Franklin's officers. Houston provides an introduction and extensive annotations. Arctic Artist is the liveliest and most complete account of Sir John Franklin's tragic first Arctic land expedition. George Back's prose captures the drama of this journey, and his superb water colour sketches reveal the beauty and wonder of this northern land. Back's journal completes Stuart Houston's trilogy of the journals of Franklin's officers, and is particularly valuable because it is the only journal that records the entire expedition; Franklin himself relied on it for his own published account of the journey. Houston provides an introduction and extensive annotations, as well as synopses of the frank comments regarding the expedition recorded in the various journals of the Hudson's Bay fur trade posts. I.S. MacLaren's commentary on Back's paintings reveals a naval officer of exceptional talent. Conversant with the artistic conventions and aesthetic temper of his age, Back used his sketchbooks not only to depict the expedition's progress but also to capture his imaginative response to the northern wilderness. MacLaren also edits and comments on two other documents written by Back during the expedition: a candid letter to his brother and a poem dramatizing the disaster that claimed the lives of eleven of the twenty explorers in Franklin's party

Narrative of an expedition in hms terror : undertaken with a view to geographical by George Back( )

2 editions published between 1838 and 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having served on expeditions under John Franklin, the British naval officer Sir George Back (1796–1878) had already gained first-hand experience of Arctic peril and survival by the time he was appointed in 1836 to command HMS Terror. His mission was to survey uncharted coastline in the Canadian Arctic, yet Back's ship became trapped in ice near Frozen Strait and was unable to escape for ten months. In this account, first published in 1838, Back lucidly documents the developing crisis, noting the numerous preparations to abandon ship, the deaths of three of his men from scurvy, and the further damage caused by an iceberg after the Terror was freed. Against the odds, the ship managed to reach Ireland in 1837. Naturally, Back gives much credit to the durability of the Terror - originally a bomb vessel from the War of 1812, it had been further strengthened for Arctic service
