Из истории экспедиции Джорджа Де Лонга на шхуне "Жанетта"...

NH 92150.jpg

Map based on reports of Chief Engineer George Melville, USN, who travelled extensively in the area while searching for other survivors of the Jeannette Arctic exploring expedition, during October-November 1881 and early 1882. The campsite where the expedition's leader, Lieutenant Commander George DeLong, and his men perished of starvation is near the center of the map. Copied from The Voyage of the Jeannette ..., Volume II, page 825, edited by Emma DeLong, published in 1884.
