Report of the Cruise of the US Revenue Cutter 'Bear' and the Overland Expedition for the Relief of the Whalers in the Arctic Ocean, from November 27, 1897, to September 13, 1898
Washington, Government Printing Office, 1899.
Octavo, 144 pages plus numerous full-page plates and a very large folding colour map.
Original pebble-grain blue cloth very slightly rubbed at the extremities and slightly bumped along the front bottom edge; two tiny leading edge tears to the flyleaf and adjacent blank leaf expertly closed; an excellent copy.
'Rec'd from Lt. Jarvis / Jan. 19, 1900. / W W Smithers' is pencilled onto the front flyleaf. First Lieutenant D.H. Jarvis was the commander of the overland relief expedition; his very detailed report occupies 76 pages of this volume.
