About

A depiction of the events of 26 August 1833, when John Ross and the crew of the Victory, after four winters trapped in the Arctic ice, were rescued by the whaling ship Isabella. Ross reported that the mate of the Isabella, "with the usual blunderheadedness of men on such occasions ... assured me that I had been dead two years." Plate facing p.720 of the Narrative of a second voyage in search of a north-west passage, and of a residence in the Arctic regions during the years 1829 ... 1833, by Sir John Ross (London, 1835). The expedition led by John Ross and his nephew James Clark Ross to find the elusive Northwest Passage lasted from 1829 to 1833. John Ross was knighted in 1834 following his return to England.

Original: engraving. 1835
