Dealer Notes
In May 1850, Horatio Austin led an expedition in search of Sir John Franklin's ships. It returned in September 1851, and as a memento of the voyage it was decided to publish the five numbers of the Illustrated Arctic News issued in manuscript during the wintering of one of the ships, the Resolute. This is the published version, with reproductions of playbills, entertainments, poetry, snippets of news, and sketches by members of the crew.
