        Expedition S.M. Schiff \"Pola\" (Tiefsee-Exedition). A. Forschungen im Rothen Meere. B. Forschungen im Östlichen Mittelmeere. Reihen 6-14 in zus. 9 Bänden (= komplett für die Forschungsergebnisse im Roten Meer).

      Wien, C. Gerold / Hof- und Staatsdruckerei bzw. ab Reihe 9 bei A. Hölder, 1898-1931. 30 cm. zusammen ca. 2000 Seiten und zus. 45 meist gefaltete Karten, 117 Tafeln und 189 Textabb. Orig. Verlagseinbände: Orig.-Halbleinenbände mit montiertem Umschlag, die letzten beiden Bände in Orig.-Broschur. *Enthält die wissenschaftlichen Ergebnisse der Österreichischen Tiefsee-Expeditionen und ozeanographische Forschungen im Roten Meer und im östlichen Mittelmeer. Die Reihen 1-5 (hier nicht vorhanden) behandeln das östliche Mittelmeer, die Reihen 6-14 (hier vollständig) behandeln die Erforschung des Roten Meeres sowie einige wenige Ergänzungen zum östlichen Mittelmeer. - Dem Zeitalter der großen Entdeckungen folgten im 18. Jahrhundert eine Vielzahl von detaillierten Entdeckungsreisen und im 19. Jahrhundert wurden auch die entlegensten Gebiete der Erde besucht, vor allem aber gab es eine Vielzahl von zumeist staatlich finanzierten wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen und Forschungs-Expeditionen. Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts war die Erde an ihrer Oberfläche nahezu vollständig \"entdeckt\" und bekannt. Dem großen Enthusiasmus und Forschergeist blieben nur noch die Tiefen unter der Erde bzw. unter dem Meerspiegel. Die Bedeutung des Meeres und ihrer unter dem Wasser liegenden Schätze waren ebenso evident wie auch geheimnisvoll. Eine dieser großen Tiefsee-Expeditionen gegen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts waren die Österreichischen Expeditionen des S.M. Schiff \"Pola\" in das östliche Mittelmeer (bis 1894) und nachfolgend in 2 Reisen in das nördliche und südliche Rote Meer (1895/98). Die Publikation der wissenschaftlichen Ergebnisse dieser 2 Expeditionen in das Rote Meer liegen hier vollständig vor in den Bänden 6-14 der Berichte der Commission für ozeanographische Forschungen. Der Schwerpunkt lag auf der zoologischen Erforschung, daneben gab es aber auch umfangreiche meteorologische, geodätische, geologische, botanische, chemische, und physikalische Untersuchungen, Wasserproben etc. Neben der Tiefsee wurden auch die Küsten von Südarabien (Jemen), Sokotra, Sudan, Ägypten, Arabien, Levante, Kleinasien und Libyen besucht und erforscht. Der Reisebericht (erzählender Teil) wurde separat in 2 Bänden veröffentlicht von Paul Edler von Pott (ein Exemplar momentan ebenfalls lieferbar). Die Publikation ist mit großem wissenschaftlichem und verlegerischem Aufwand (hervorragendes Karten- und Abbildungsmaterial) über einen Zeitraum von fast 40 Jahren in kleiner Auflage für wissenschaftliche Kreise und Bibliotheken herausgegeben worden. Trotz entsprechend hoher Preise, die für eine Privatperson meist unerschwinglich blieb, war eine solche Publikation nur mit Hilfe beträchtlicher finanzieller Mittel des Staates Österreich möglich. - Abgesehen von kleineren Lagerspuren (wenige Einbände gelegentlich etwas berieben, ein Vorderdeckel fleckig, Bezug der Innendeckel teils etwas wellig) sind alle Bände unbenutzt und in guter Gesamterhaltung. - The scientific results of the important oceanographic expedition in the Mediterranean and Red Sea, called \"Pola Expedition\". The available volumes 6 to 14 are complete for the contributions on the Red Sea. Deals mainly on the zoological results but also on botanic, water, chemical and physical investigations of deep waters and coasts of Arabia, Egypt, Yemen and Sinai - published in a time of about 35 years. Contains 45 maps and 117 plates in best quality. Orig. publ. half cloth, the last 2 vols in orig. wraps. One front cover stained, but in all a good and unused copy. Complete for the part of the Red Sea (vols 1-5 deals with the results in the Eastern Mediterranean). [extra shipping, large weight]. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        [MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF ARTHUR L. MORROW, COVERING HIS TRIP AND SOME OF HIS TIME SPENT AS A KLONDIKE GOLD RUSH STAMPEDER AND PROSPECTOR]

      [Various locations in Alaska, including Sitka, Unalaska, and Schieffelin Creek], 1898. Approximately [110]pp. plus various folded clippings stored in the rear pocket. Contemporary leatherette folding diary, with original matching pencil. Minor wear, mostly clean inside. Very good. A brief but important record of travel, life, and work in Alaska during the height of the Klondike Gold Rush. The diary was kept by Arthur L. Morrow of Auburn, Maine, and is signed by him on each side of the first leaf. The initial pages contain names and addresses of contacts and expenses dated Nov. 18, 1900, with occasional notes on the calendar from Jan. 2, 1898. The entries begin in earnest when Morrow leaves Maine for the Klondike on May 11, 1898. What follows are brief but regular details of Morrow's lengthy overland trip through Montreal, Chicago, St. Paul, Dakota, the Rocky Mountains ("it was a grand sight"), the Cascade Mountains ("the grandest scenery of all"), Seattle, and then by boat to Vancouver, arriving in Sitka in late June. Upon landing in Sitka, Morrow writes on June 28: "Have been ashore and there are many curious and interesting sights - the ancient Russian cemitary [sic], the Greek church and Indians. Went fishing this A.M. Caught 9 fine fish." After a few days in and around Sitka, Morrow and his party leave for Dutch Harbor, Unalaska, where they spend a couple of weeks in July, mostly fishing. The group continues to St. Michael, Alaska. Here, Morrow departs with a small boating party up the Yukon River, passing Indian villages, where he observes that they are "making good progress though the river is very crooked, have to go a long way round to get a short distance...stop at Russian mission, see lots of natives. They are very filthy, several lay dying in a tent with pneumonia." Morrow and his group arrive in September at "Sheflin Creek" [Schieffelin] in the Rampart Mountains to begin prospecting. The group sets up winter camp, and busies themselves with making sleds, shooting at bear when they are not busy prospecting on claims. On September 8, Morrow writes: "Go out prospecting all day - do not find any sign of Gold." October 7, he again comments on the lack of success in the Yukon: "Go up a small creek 6 miles have hard days work find no indication of Gold." Towards the end of October, and into early November, Morrow is laid up with an abcess under his arm. By November 4, he is well enough to make the sled trip to his next destination at Bear Creek, and then he heads for the final location mentioned in this diary - Morlock Creek. Before arriving there, Morrow reports on a meeting held in camp on November 21, where the members of his "Association" [read prospecting outfit] "voted to release Henry Burbe from Asso. give him 1/2 claim No. 5 on Bear Creek, 1 claim on Aurora Grande & his share of provisions." The next day, Morrow's final entry reads, "Start for Morlock Creek 20 miles down river." On the terminal pages of the journal, Morrow has scribbled lists, including prices for supplies, some entries that seem to be IOUs, and names of companions including R.O. Howard, H. Ward, Saucire, Talbot, Boule, and Mackenzie. Some ephemeral items stored inside the rear pocket include freight receipts from the Boston & Alaska Transportation Company and Central Wharf shipping lines, a brief supply list, a check stub from a transportation company, and a single page of a letter to Morrow, which he has used the verso of as a supply list, with costs. An interesting Klondike Gold Rush diary from the height of the stampede, covering a vast amount of Alaskan territory in a seven-month span.
