Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - Classic account of the three earliest Dutch exploration voyages (1594, 1595, 1596) in search of a northeast passage to China by Willem Barentsz, two in company with Jan Huygen van Linschoten, the celebrated traveler to the East.The author, Gerrit de Veer, had taken part in the second and third voyage. During the third voyage Barendsz and his crew members were iced in and forced to winter over in Novaya Zemlya in a wooden cabin ('Het behouden Huis'). Trapped from August 26, 1596, to June 14, 1597, they were finally able to sail in open boats some 1600 miles during which they battled continuously against marauding polar bears and pack ice. Barendsz had taken ill and died five days after their escape from the arctic wastes. In 1871 the expedition's winter quarters were found along with many artifacts. Though a northeast passage was not found, the expeditions were considerable successful for the discovery of Spitsbergen in 1596 and for their reports of the abundance of right whales off Spitsbergen, encouraging the start of Dutch arctic whaling. It is one of the most gripping nautical adventures and is the earliest recorded over-wintering this far north. - (Missing plate 2,5,6,7,8,10,13,15,19).Landwehr, VOC, 250. [Boeknr.: 35249 ]
