It was one of the most important voyages in the history of Arctic exploration. By August 1, 1819, Sir William Edward Parry (1790-1855) had managed to sail westward completely through Lancaster Sound, establishing that it was actually a strait. He then made the European discovery of Barrow Street, which he named after Sir John Barrow. Continuing westward, he reached the south coast of a large island he named Melville Island after Lord Melville. Parry and his men had sailed west of the 110th meridian of longitude, half the distance of the Northwest Passage, and thereby won a prize of 5.000, which Parliament had offered as an incentive for the discovery of the Northwest Passage. - (Some spotting and foxing as usual). - A fine copy of a cornerstone book of Arctic Exploration.Arctic Bibl. 13145; Hill 1311; Sabin 58860; TPL 1205; Stam, Books on ice, p.24; Howgego II, p.465.

The valuable appendix gives geographical and meteorological observations, zoological and botanical records, accounts of the distillation of fresh water from the sea, and astronomical observations. The voyage is perhaps best remembered for the presence of young Horatio Nelson, as midshipsman aboard the Carcass, and his encounter with a polar bear' (Hill 1351). On board the Racehorse was the Nigerian author Olaudah Equiano. Phipps's narrative of his voyage was of considerable scientific interest and was the beginning of modern efforts to reach the North Pole.
