A Summer Search for Sir John Franklin; with a Peep into the Polar Basin ... With short notices, by Professor Dickie, on the Botany, and by Dr. Sutherland, on the Meteorology and Geology; and a new chart of the Arctic Sea.


Date: 1853



This work recounts an unsuccessful expedition by Edward Augustus Inglefield to find the missing Franklin expedition. Following the disappearance of Sir John Franklin and his crew during a mission to find the North-West Passage, the Admiralty organized numerous searches for the missing men.

Edward Inglefield sailed to the Arctic in the summer of 1852 in command of the Isabel, a steamer donated by Lady Franklin on the condition that it was used to search for her husband. First published in 1853, Inglefield's account of the voyage is accompanied by a number of illustrations.

The work also includes appendices listing the flowering plants and algae of the Arctic region as noted by the botanist George Dickie (1812-82), geographical and meteorological information collected by expedition surgeon Peter Sutherland (1822-1900), and Inglefield's correspondence with the Admiralty.
