Lieutenant William Browne, who drew the illustrations in this volume, was on the Enterprise on Sir James Clark Ross's voyage of 1848-49 in search of Franklin. Franklin and his men had disappeared from European view in 1845 and Ross's expedition was one of the earliest sent out to look for the missing explorers. The first indications of the fate of Franklin and his men were found by this expedition on August 23rd 1850.

Ross followed the route that Franklin had been ordered to take but became beset in the ice at Somerset Island close to the location of the illustration. After the ships were freed, they abandoned the search because Barrow Strait was impassable to the west.

Views in this book depict Prince Leopold Island, Uppernavik, the Southern Depot, the Devils Thumb and more. With text in English and French in parallel columns summarizing the Franklin search expeditions in the central Canadian arctic.

Folio (370 x 270mm). 7 tinted lithographs containing 10 views by Charles Hague after drawings by W.H. Browne.
