Map of Smith Sound and Greenland, 1875 Featured 16 Aug 2004 Print

Map of Smith Sound and Greenland, 1875

Engraving showing a map of Smith Sound and Greenland, as it was known in May 1875. Much of the map is erroneous or missing in detail, as the Arctic area had been little visited by Europeans up to that time. In the summer of 1875 the British Admiralty sent Captain George Nares with two ships, HMS 'Alert' and HMS 'Discovery', to make an attempt to reach the North Pole via Smith Sound. The attempt was unsuccessful, but a new 'furthest North' record was set, the coasts of Greenland and Ellesmere Island were further charted and much scientific data gathered
