In December 1874 the Admiralty advised the Royal Society that it intended to despatch an expedition to ‘reach the North Pole and to explore the coast of Greenland and adjacent lands.’ It asked them to compile a manual of all that was considered useful for the trip and a committee of august members was formed to produce this work. It covers just about everything that was known about the region and arctic exploration at the time and is an invaluable tool to any scholar interested in this period.
