St. Petersburg, gedruckt in der Schnoorschen Buchdruckery, auf Kosten des Verfassers, 1810-1812. 3 volumes. 4to (265 x 215mm). pp.(8), xx, 353, (1); (4), 436; (4), iv, 376,(2), with 1 folded table. Contemporary calf, spines with 2 gilt lettered labels (slightly rubbed). Very rare text volumes of the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe. A large folio atlas accompanying the German text was published in 1814. The work was first published in Russian in St.Peterburg 1809-1812 likewise in 4to. "Its historic importance lies in the fact that the expedition commanded by Kruzenshtern was the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe, during which two ships - the Nadezhda and the Neva - visited and chartered the North Pacific area, including Alaska. They also discovered a number of hitherto unknown islands in the South Pacific" (Lada-Mocarski 62)./Second volume with some slight occasional marginal staining, the third volume with strong browning at the lower margin of the first 25 leaves sometimes affecting the printed text, the same to the last 10 leaves. The collation is similar to Lada-Mocarski, with one acception that our copy of the 3rd volume has one more leaf at the beginning; leaf 359/360 is numbered twice as is correct.//Arctic Bibliography 9377; Lada-Mocarski 62; Nissen ZBI, 2310.
