First edition of an account of the Russian polar expedition headed by Eduard Vasilyevich Toll (1858 – 1902) on the ship Zarya, primarily aimed at discovering Sannikov Land, a mythical island said to be located off Russia's Arctic coast.


During this voyage, Toll and a small group of explorers vanished from Bennett Island, and their fate continues to be a mystery. Two rescue missions were set out, but all they found were the collections and the diaries of the expedition, which formed the basis of the present account.
