Record #15249:

Østgrønlands historie / W. Werenskiold.

Title: Østgrønlands historie / W. Werenskiold.
Translated title: East Greenland's history.
Author(s): Werenskiold, W.
Date: 1932.
Language: Norwegian.
Abstract: Article summarises coast's history from Hudson's discovery to attempt to settle Scoresby Sund in 1920s. Near, but inaccessible, East Greenland was first described in Konungs Skuggsjá, seen again by Hudson in 1607 off Hold with Hope, explored by Scoresby in 1822, charted by Clavering in 1823 (meeting Inuit with tent), and visited for pendulum observations by Sabine in same year. Whaling was incentive for new landfalls, particularly by Scoresby from 1822. Walløe had explored further south in umiaks in 1751. Graah then carried out umiak voyage in 1828, followed similarly by Holm and Garde from 1884-5, then by Koldewey and Payer, Mylius-Erichsen's expedition, etc. Final part is on fisheries in West Ice, sealing and fur trapping, and describes Norwegian Polar hunting in 19th and 20th centuries, with some groups overwintering. Danes settled Greenlanders in Scoresby Sound in 1925 and 1927.
