Sir John Barrow (1764-1848) was a fellow of the Royal Society and served as Second Secretary of the Admiralty for forty years. In his position at the Admiralty, he was a great promoter of Arctic voyages of discovery, including those of John Ross, William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and John Franklin. Barrow Strait in the Canadian Arctic as well as Point Barrow and the city of Barrow, Alaska are named after him. This is a nice reprint of his very thorough Arctic history.
