Sir John Ross, CB, (24 June 1777 – 30 August 1856) was a Scottish rear admiral and Arctic explorer.Ross was the son of the Rev. Andrew Ross, minister of Inch, near Stranraer in Scotland. In 1786, aged only nine, he joined the Royal Navy as an apprentice. He served in the Mediterranean until 1789 and then in the English Channel. In 1808, he acted as a captain of the Swedish Navy and in 1812 became a Commander.He left in May 1829 for a second expedition , this time on the Victory, a side-wheel steam ship.  They sailed past Lancaster Sound to a previously unexplored area, where their ship became stuck in the ice. The crew was stranded for four years, during which they explored the regions to the west and north, with the help of local Inuit. On one of these explorations, Ross found the magnetic north pole on the Boothia Peninsula.In 1832, Ross and his crew abandoned their ship and walked to another shipwreck which had been abandoned by a different expedition many years earlier. A year went by before a break in the ice allowed them to leave, on that ship's longboats. They were eventually picked up by a British vessel and taken home.

Herrmann J. Meyer and his father, Joseph Meyer, were publishers of an illustrated travel series called Meyer's Universumin Germany. Joseph Meyer admired the U.S.A and sent his son to establish a printing house in New York. He published an American edition of the Universum, "Universum Or Views Of The Most Remarkable Places And Objects Of All Countries", which was published by the North American Bibliographic Institution (New York: H.J. Meyer; first volume, 1852; second volume 1853.) using prints from Germany. He also published "The United States Illustrated" enlisting the services of Charles A. Dana editor of the New York Tribune to be editor of the series. Unfortunately, the series did not do well as most titles were a mix of German and English in both publications making them scarce to find today for good impressions of early America Condition .. . . . . . . . Some flaws as in pic mostly minor all are clearly shown if present . .
