Reprint of the 1906 edition (Cambridge: At the University Press, 1906). Hardbound. Cloth. Octavo. xii, 377pp. 11 illustrations + 12 maps, 1 folding. Spitsbergen is the main island of the Svalbard archipelago. The island is part of Norway, located in the Arctic Ocean well north of the Arctic Circle. The existence of this island group was discovered in 1194, according to the Icelandic Annals, but remained unknown to the modern world until rediscovered by the Dutch explorers in 1596. Dutch and English Whalers arrived as early as 1611. The Russians arrived in 1715. Many polar explorations have made Spitsbergen their base of scientific discovery. The first polar exploration was conducted by British Captain C.J. Phipps in 1773, followed by Norwegian, Swedish, and German groups in the 19th century. Conway's work is a history of this important island from its first discovery by Europeans through the end of the 19th century. It includes a history the whaling and hunting on the island. Conway was a well-known British mountain climber, explorer and art historian. He explored Spitsbergen in 1896-97 and published an account of his findings.
