XI,(1),303; VIII,296 pp. Second edition; first published in London in 1809. - Robert Ker Porter (1775-1842), English traveller and artist, went to Russia as historical painter to the tsar for the first time in 1804. He there gained the affections of the Princess Mary, the daughter of Prince Theodor von Sherbatov. He travelled in Finland and to Sweden where in 1806 he received a knighthood from Gustavis IV. In 1808 he accompanied Sir John Moore to Spain, and in 1811-1812 returned to Russia to mary his Princess. He was knighted by the Prince Regent in 1813. In 1817 Porter travelled back to St. Petersburg' (Howgego II, p.487-488). 'A man of the most varied attainments, Porter was justly described as 'distinguished alike in arts, in diplomacy, in war, and in literature'. He was a splendid horseman, excellent in field sports, and possessed the art of ingratiating himself with people of every rank in life. Unlike some popular favourites, he was the idol of his own domestic circle' (DNB). His narrative includes observations and impressions of St. Petersburg, Moscow, Upsala, Stockholm, Russian and Scandinavian art collections and museums, the Russian army, law, religion, education, etc.The beautiful plates are made after drawings by the author. - Some offsetting of the plates as always, hole in blank margin of last leaf vol.

As his lieutenants, Ross had aboard his nephew James Clark Ross, William Parry, and Edwin Sabone, all of furure fame as explorers. Ross attempted to proceed westward through Lancaster Sound, but presumably deceived by a mirage, he described the passage as barred by a range of mountains, which he named the Croker Mountains, despite the disbelief of his colleagues (Hill 1488). The controversy had discredited Ross in the eyes of the Admiralty and for the next ten years he received no further commissions for exploratory voyages (Howgego II, R28). Ross began a new era in Arctic research (Stam, Books on ice, p.21). - (Age-browned). - Very rare.Cat. NHSM I, p.304; not in Tiele; Sabin 73380; Arctic Bibl. 14873. [Boeknr.: 36194 ]
