London, J. Murray, Albermarle St. [1838.]
Lithograph, sheet 140 x 210mm. 5½ x 8¼".
In 1836, command of Terror was given to Sir George Back (1796 - 1878) for an expedition to the northern part of Hudson Bay, Canada, with a view to entering Repulse Bay, where landing parties were to be sent out to determine whether the Boothia Peninsula was an island or a peninsula. However, Terror failed to reach Repulse Bay and barely survived the winter off Southampton Island, at one point being forced 40 feet up the side of a cliff by the ice. In the spring of 1837, an encounter with an iceberg further damaged the ship, which was in a sinking condition by the time Back was able to beach the ship on the coast of Ireland at Lough Swilly. Plate to Back's 'Narrative of an expedition in H.M.S. Terror : undertaken with a view to geographical discovery on the Arctic shores, in the years 1836-37'.

Red cliffs seen in Baffin Bay west of Cape York, by Sir John Ross during his search for the North West Passage.

From 'A Voyage of Discovery, made under the orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's ships Isabella and Alexander, for the Purpose of Exploring Baffin's Bay, and Inquiring into the Probability of a North-West Passage.
