"Mifflin and Parry, printers"--Verso of t.p.
"Advertisement. The English edition of this work is accompanied by a series of meteorological tables, which would greatly increase the bulk, and of course the expense of this edition, if appended thereto. On mature reflection, the publishers have judged it advisable to omit them, as not being of genera; utility proportioned to the additional expense to the purchasers. The public libraries contain the quarto edition of the voyage, where the curious may consult them."--p. [v].
"Zoology", p. [165]-195, is written by Lieut. James Clark Ross.
"Botanical appendix", p. [196]-209, is written by Professor [William Jackson] Hooker.
"Notes on the geology of the countries discovered during Captain Parry's second expedition. A.D. 1821-22-23", p. 210-232, is written by Professor [Robert] Jameson.
