Record #202761:

Making books for Mr Murray: the case of Edward Parry's third Arctic narrative / Janice Cavell.

Title: Making books for Mr Murray: the case of Edward Parry's third Arctic narrative / Janice Cavell.
Author(s): Cavell, Janice.
Date: 2013.
Publisher: [Oxford]: [Bibliographical Society]
Abstract: Account of controversies surrounding nineteenth-century Arctic narratives and their authors, particularly the difficulty of establishing credibility in the face of increasingly sceptical reviewers and satirical criticism. Parry's first two accounts of his Arctic expeditions made considerable profits for publisher, John Murray. While engaged on his third expedition however, Parry became the butt of satirists including Hood and Coleridge, amid more serious accusations that the true purpose of the expedition was to enable Murray to produce yet another grandiose volume of doubtful veracity. Criticism was eventually forestalled by Parry's writing technique and obvious honesty, and his 1826 book received favourable reviews. Murray was eventually forced to curtail his lavish production style, but his publications in general were central in establishing Arctic explorers as national heroes.
