Engraved map with original hand colour. 465 x 615mm. Binding folds flattened, as normal, narrow right edge.
A map of the discoveries of John Ross and his nephew, John Clark Ross, in the Gulf of Boothia, with five coastal profiles (one lettered upside-down). On an expedition to find the North West Passage Ross was the first European to enter the gulf (although it had been seen by Parry in 1822), naming it after their patron, gin-magnate Sir Felix Booth. They spent the next four years stuck in ice, during which time John Clark Ross became the first European to reach the Magnetic North Pole, then at Cape Adelaide on the Boothia Peninsula. Eventually the crew left their ship and were rescued by a whaler, who thought they had perished two years before. This map was published in Ross's 'Narrative of a Second Voyage in Search of a North-West Passage', 1835.

Coloured aquatint. 200 x 450mm (8 x 17¾") very large margins. Folded as issued.
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.

[Bothians] Nimna Himna. called by the Men Old Greedy
On Stone by J. Brandard, from the original Drawing by Captain Ross [c.1835]
[London: A. W. Webster, 156 Regent Street, 1835.]
Lithograph, with hand colour. Sheet 235 x 185mm (9¼ x 7¼")
A woman from the Boothia Peninsula, Nunavut, Canada, described by John Ross in his 'Narrative of a Second Voyage in Search of a North-west Passage' (1835), from which this print originates. In his narrative, Ross writes that Nimna Himna 'was a constant visitor to the ship, and generally carried off something which she had picked up. On one occasion, when coming up the ladder, she was tumbled off by the surgeon, and falling on her back, pretended to faint; from which, although all the doctor could do could not recover her, she was restored by the offer of an empty tin case, which had contained preserved meat: a stratagem which she subsequently tried more than once without success. She was about sixty years of age, five feet two inches high, extremely ill-looking, and decidedly the most disgusting of the whole tribe'. Ross was forced by ice to stop at the Boothia peninsula (which he named after his patron Sir Felix Booth) for four years while searching for the north-west passage.
