Engraving by Edward Finden after a drawing by George Back (1796-1878), one of the members of John Franklin's (1786-1847) expedition, from Franklin's 'Narrative of a journey to the shores of the Polar Sea, in the years 1819, 20, 21, and 22', published in London in 1823. Franklin died in 1845 during another expedition, as did his entire team who perished of starvation and scurvy, although Franklin was posthumously credited with the discovery of the Northwest Pasage.
