[London, 1732. ,489-514pp. plus four plates. Folio. Modern half cloth and marbled boards, gilt leather label. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. Extracted from a later edition of Churchill's VOYAGES AND TRAVELS..., the narrative of Captain Jens Munk's voyage to discover the Northwest Passage under the auspices of King Christian IV. He made it through Hudson's Strait to Hudson's Bay, where the party was forced to winter. Unfortunately, icy conditions, lack of resources, and scurvy claimed the lives of most of the men, forcing an early retreat for Munk and the two remaining survivors of his disastrous voyage. With much on whales and whaling techniques. (Inventory #: WRCAM50878)
