Object ID G285:4/9(1)
Description Scale approx. 1:1,000,000. This British Admiralty publication records the locations where relics of the Franklin expedition were discovered on and around King William Island where many of Franklin’s men died. Rupert Gould compiled information brought back by the searching expeditions led by Anderson (1855), McClintock (1859), Hall (1866), Schwatka (1879), Rasmussen (1924), Norberg (1926) and Burwash (1926). A note states: 'The information shown in red is based upon the personal observations of various British and American explorers in the region. The information show in blue is based upon various Eskimo reports obtained by those explorers, and probably is not altogether trustworthy'.
Date made 1927
