Also included are pp. 756-776: 'A Journey of John Baptist Merin To the Mines of Hungary' and 'An Account of the Cape of Good Hope' by Wiliam Ten Rhyme. For Pelham, see Cox, 1631. The eight Englishmen were left by mistake in Greenland in 1630; by careful preparation, they pulled through. This was the first time an Artic winter was successfully braved on the shores of the Spitzbergen. Pelham's account of the feat attracted great attention. It was also reprinted in the Hakluyt Society volume for 1902. Bound to style in quarter leather, red leather lettering piece, gilt; marbled paper boards.
