Excerpt from The Norwegian North Polar Expedition, 1893-1896, Vol. 6: Scientific ResultsThe history of our expedition is in several respects intimately connected with the name of my good friend, Prof. H. Mohn. As stated in the Introduction to my popular account of the Expedition("Farthest North") it was after reading a newspaper article by Prof. Mohn (in1884) on the Jeanette relics that I got the first suggestion towards the planning of the expedition. Mohn was one of the few who always believed in the practicability of this plan. He was one of the last friends to bid us farewell when we left Vardo in 1893, and by a strange coincidence he was also the first friend Johansen and I met, when three years later we again went ashore, also at Vardo.This important volume is entirely Mohn's work, and in now laying it before the scientific world I feel I could find no better opportunity of according him my special and cordial thanks for the valuable assistance he rendered the expedition in this and in other ways.At my request Professor H. Mohn kindly took charge of the meteorological equipment of the expedition from the very beginning. In concert with me, he laid the plan of the meteorological work to be carried out during the voyage; he ordered the instruments and tested them, and he gave Capt. Scott-Hansen the necessary instructions for making the observations, and pointed out how the whole meteorological work should be superintended.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
