The Five Flags Hoisted at 83 20 26 N. on - - 1876. [1276067]
Rare lithograph commemorating the farthest north record set by Commander Markham on May 12th. 1876, showing the five flags of the expedition. The British Arctic Expedition of 1875-1876, led by Sir George Nares, was another attempt by the Admiralty to reach the North Pole. Although the expedition failed in its goal to reach the Pole a sledging party under Commander Markham did in fact set the new record commemorated by this broadside.
