A Series of Fourteen Sketches Made During the Voyage Up Wellington Channel in search of Sir John Franklin, K.C.H. and the missing crews of H. M. discovery-ships Erebus and Terror : together witha short account of each drawing


Date: 1855



Walter William May served as mate aboard the Resolute during the expedition of 1850-1851 and led a depot laying party as far as Cape Gillman on Bathurst Island, traveling 371 miles in 34 days. He also undertook a short exploratory journey around Griffith Island.

The present work records his impressions of the expedition of 1852-1854 when he served as Lieutenant in the Assistance under the overall command of Sir Edward Belcher.

During this expedition he undertook a journey on which he covered 600 miles in 62 days. May retired from the Navy as a Commander in 1854 and went on to a successful career as an artist: the bas-relief on the pedestal of Franklin's statue in Waterloo Place, London, is from his design.

At head of title: Dedicated by special permission to the Right Hon. Sir James R. G. Graham, Bart., G.C.B., M.P.
