Abstract

Franz Josef Land was discovered on 30th August 1873 by an Austro-Hungarian Expedition. The A. describes the story of this 1872-1874 Tegetthof expedition, which was originally destined for the North Pole, but had as its ultimate intention the discovery of a Northeast Passage to the Far East. However, while caught in the grip of the ice for some two years, the expedition unexpectedly came upon Franz Josef Land, spending seven months of winter 1873–1874 there. Unsurprisingly, the expedition’s contribution to the scientific discovery of the archipelago and to the mapping thereof proved to be of considerable significance. – (BJ)
