Robert Edwin Peary went down in history for being the first to discover the North Pole, however that accomplishment wouldn't be achieved until 1909. Peary did, however, make several expedition to the Arctic areas of Canada and Greenland between 1886 and 1897 in preparation for his ultimate goal. This wood engraving undoubtedly depicts his return from one such excursion. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Marine , Steam
