First edition. Published in Philadelphia, PA, in two volumes. Large 8vo size.

Original uniform pictorial embossed cloth with gilt title on the spines. Original brown endpapers.

On the title pages, the title is shorter: Arctic explorations in the years 1853, '54, '55.

Seems to lack one map in vol 1 (rear pocket empty). Some light rubbing to extremities, light pencilled marginalia to one text leaf, otherwise a very good, clean set. Rare in the original bindings.
