This book is another account of the expedition also described by William Beresford. The ships were owned by a group of merchants who formed a company to participate in fur trading on the northwestern North American coast. Portlock sent a longboat to explore an inlet on Chichagof Island that he named after himself.
Acquired before 1874.
