St. John's, NF: The Flanker Press, (2007). Pp. (6),vii-xvi,1-302,(2). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. "On January 4, 1914, theKarluk was stuck in ice when the ominous sound of the ship's stern being r ipped open by pack ice was heard by all on board. It sounded like the firing of a cannon. Bartlett immediately ordered supplies be unloaded on the ice. The Karluk began to break up on January 10, and all on board were orderedto abandon ship. When everyone was safely on the ice, the captain himself went back to his cabin and, all alone, put Chopin's 'Funeral March' on his Victrola. As the water rose in the cabin, he whispered 'Goodbye', left the sinking vessel to the mournful sound of Chopin's music and hurried out on the ice. It was to be the beginning of one of the greatest feats of valour in world history. From O'Neill's foreword (and the rear cover). Very good. 12.00

Pp [i]-xiii,(1),1-322. Illustrated. Index. 8vo, illustrated white card covers. “Sails Over Ice picks up where The Log of Bob Bartlett left off. Between the years 1925-1933, Captain Bob Bartlett and the Morrissey explored coastal Greenland and much of Northern Canada, harvesting scientific specimens and Inuit artifacts for North American societies and museums and collecting Arctic mammals for zoos. This world-famous captain from Newfoundland never lost a single soul on either of these trips. Most believe that Bartlett's contribution to exploration and natural science is without equal.” - from the back cover. Very good. 12.50
