$1,200.00Manby--George-WilliamJournal-of-a-Voyage-to-Greenland--in-the-year-1821An arctic whaling classic. Scarce second edition (1823) of this illustrated account of the whaling ship Baffin’s voyage with Captain Scoresby. The main purpose of the voyage was to test a new harpoon design by Scoresby. The voyage took them first to Spitzbergen, along the coast of Greenland, to Iceland and then home. <br></br> George Manby accompanied Captain Scoresby on the voyage into the northern Greenland Sea aboard the whaling ship Baffin. Manby creates a vivid picture of Arctic whaling as it was practiced during the early part of the 19th Century. Scoresby invented a harpoon gun and is also remembered for his life-saving apparatus. Numerous woodcuts in the text of whales, narwhal, and other arctic creatures. <br></br> With a fine hand-colored folding map "A General Map of the Polar Ice in the Greenland Sea and Track of the Ship Baffin in the Summer of 1821 by G.W. Manby (14" x 10"). Contains 20 uncolored lithographic plates illustrating the voyage. Five plates "Drawn on stone by J.D.

In 1822 Scoresby mapped the East coast of Greenland. The "Baffin" finally sank in 1830 when 19 out of 90 ships in the whaling fleet were lost in bad weather in the Davis Strait. Scoresby's plans, together with this scale model of his ship are in the Whitby Museum, Yorkshire, England.<a href="http://www.whitbymuseum.org.uk/hpmimages/index1.htm " target="_blank"> (Internet. 2016.)</a> <br></br> Printed for G. and W.B.

Coverage includes Staten Island, the Hudson River, Newark Bay, and the Rockaway Peninsula. Produced under the direction of A.D. Bache, a great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin (Guthorn, 1984). The chart is based on triangulation of J. Ferguson and E. Blunt. <br></br> This chart is even more scarce and unusual because of its provenance and because it is a folding chart. The chart was dissected into 8 sections and mounted to linen at the time it was issued. Folded the chart measures 8" x 14". Separately issued by the U.S. Coast Survey in 1866 for use at sea, this chart is NOT the commonly found Coast Survey sketch/chart on thin paper. <br><br/> This chart has an interesting provenance as it carries the manuscript signature of Charles DW Brownell, Bristol, Rhode Island on the inside front cover. Charles deWolf Brownell (1822 - 1909) was born in Providence Rhode Island, educated in the law, and later settled on a career as an artist for health reasons. Brownell travelled widely to Cuba, the Carribean and Europe. He is best known for his landscapes but produced several paintings of maritime subjects including "The Burning of the Gaspee". <img src="http://gaspee.com/Brownell7a.jpg" alt="Painting by Charles DW Brownell titled 'The Burning of the Gaspee'" align="middle" height="200" width="240"><br> Brownell lived in New York City from 1860 - 1865. <br><br/> With well-worn embossed black boards and manuscript notation on verso- "New York Harbor".
