Deadly winter : the life of Sir John Franklin by Martyn Beardsley( Book )
12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 174 libraries worldwide
"This account of the life of the famous British explorer John Franklin examines his incident-filled and sometimes contentious career from his early days, when he fought at the battle of Trafalgar, to his last expedition to seek the fabled Northwest Passage when he vanished along with his men in controversial and mysterious circumstances." "Though his name is perhaps one of the most significant in the many recent books written on Arctic exploration, no biography has appeared for over twenty years. Theories - many wild - continue to abound on the fate of his final expedition of 1845, while questions hang over his first Arctic overland expedition, when many men died of cold and starvation and Franklin himself was hours from death. The author has tackled these episodes in a fair and balanced way and, drawing on much recent research, settled many of the wilder theories." "A significant part of the book is also devoted to Franklin the sailor and the man. He was present at two of Nelson's most famous battles, Copenhagen and Trafalgar, and sailed with the great navigator Matthew Flinders on the first circumnavigation of Australia. The book covers his governorship of Tasmania, and gives an insight into the corruption and political chicanery which finally drove him out. Franklin was married to two exceptional women, and through surviving letters and diaries we catch a glimpse of his relationship with the precocious but frail Eleanor Anne Porden, who died tragically young while he was away on an expedition. He subsequently married the strong-willed Jane Griffin, who won great admiration in her attempts to pressure the Admiralty to step up their efforts to find her missing husband."--BOOK JACKET

How can Inspector Bucket and Sergeant Gordon investigate without breaching professional etiquette? And who is the mysterious figure stalking Mrs Scambles?
'Gratefull to providence' : the diary and accounts of Matthew Flinders, surgeon, apothecary and man-midwife, 1775-1802 by Matthew Flinders( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 131 libraries worldwide
Matthew Flinders, surgeon and apothecary of Donington, in south Lincolnshire, in the late eighteenth century, was the father of the Matthew Flinders, sailor, navigator and explorer, and one of the central figures in the early history of the Australian nation. His diaries, published here in full for the first time, reveal a wealth of detail about the home, the family and the village in which the future explorer grew up. The daily routine of business, socialising with neighbours, unusual events such as the beaching of a whale near Boston, or the visit to Donington of Mr Powell the famous fire-eater are recorded alongside family joys and sorrows, the births and deaths of children, the passing of Flinders's beloved wife Susanna and his subsequent remarriage. The childhood and schooling of Matthew junior are a recurring theme, and the purchase of a two volume edition of Robinson Crusoe in 1782 gives a hint of things to come, though as the diaries reveal, his later career was a radical diversion from the original plan for him to follow in his father's path. --Publisher description
