About this book

A reprint of a classical work in the Cambridge Library Collection.

Son of an Arctic whaler, William Scoresby (1789–1857) made the first of many voyages to northern latitudes when he was just ten years old. Later a scientist and clergyman, he wrote on a wide range of topics, and his observations on the Arctic prompted further exploration of the region. He published some of his accounts under the generic title Memorials of the Sea (his 1835 notes on murder at sea and on the fate of the Franklin expedition have also been reissued in this series). In this 1851 book, Scoresby recounts the life of his father, also William (1760–1829), from his earliest days to his later life as a prosperous captain and exceptional navigator in the Arctic whale-fisheries, at a time when the industry gave rise to extreme danger but also offered enormous financial rewards. William, Jr's biography is also available in the Cambridge Library Collection.
