Illustrated. 8vo, white cloth with silver lettering to sp ine. "In the nineteenth century, the North Pole was a tantalizing mystery. Was it a continent of alien beings? Was it a portal into unknown inner worlds? Was it an open sea or a wilderness of ice? When Sir John Franklin went missing in 1845 explorers welcomed the opportunity to find out. Over the next hundred years Britain, the United States, Russia, Germany, and dozens ofother countries raced to be the first to the top of the globe. Picking up where he widely acclaimed 'Barrow's Boys' left off, Fergus Fleming's 'Ninety Degrees North' is a high-octane, swashbuckling history of the 'ice-clumped lunatics' who vied to conquer the ultimate north. Intrepid, obsessive, sometimes just plain insane, they endured scurvy, months-long ice traps, unspeakable deprivation, polar bear attacks, and sunless sub-100-degree fahrenheit winters that often led to mutiny and madness." - from the dj.

FORTIER, Dominique. On the Proper Use of Stars. Translated by Sheila Fischman. (Toronto) : McClelland & Stewart, (2010). First Printing. Pp (6),1-269,(5). 8vo, black cloth, metallic red lettering to spine. “A sparkling, inventive debut novel inspired by Sir John Franklin's grand — but ultimately failed — quest to discover the Northwest Passage and by his extraordinary wife, Lady Jane. Originally published in Quebec as Du bon usage des etoiles, Dominique Fortier's debut On the Proper Use of Stars is as fresh and imaginative as anything published in recent years. It weaves together the voices ofFrancis Crozier, Sir John Franklin's second in command, who turns a scepti cal eye on the grandiose ambitions and hubris of his leader, and of Lady Jane Franklin and her niece Sophia, both driven to uncommon actions by love and by frustration as months then years pass with no word from the expedition. Fortier skilfully accents the main narratives with overheard conversations and snippets from letters and documents that bring two entirely different worlds — the frozen Arctic and busy Victorian London — alive.”.
