Record #171885:

A voyage of discovery, made under the order of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay, and inquiring into the probability of a North-west Passage / John Barrow.

Title: A voyage of discovery, made under the order of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay, and inquiring into the probability of a North-west Passage / John Barrow.
Author(s): Barrow, John.
Date: 1819.
Abstract: Hostile review, attributed to John Barrow, of Ross's account of search for Northwest Passage.
Notes:

Offprint: Quarterly Review. Vol. 21(14) :213-262.

In attributing the article to Barrow, Shine cites John Murray III's Register and Gentleman's Magazine XXI 578. The following evidence indicates Barrow's authorship: Gentleman's Magazine (Mar. 1844), 246-47. Murray MS., Book Loans Register: the book reviewed was sent to 'John Barrow' on 28 Jan. 1818. Barrow famously advocated exploration of the North-West Passage in the Quarterly Review and elsewhere. Articles, all of which are by Barrow, are alluded to in the article. On p.261 of the article, Barrow refers to himself. In his QR articles, it was Barrow's signature practice to refer to his own works.
