In 1906, the famed Fleischmann family took a hunting expedition to the Arctic Seas. Known for their manufacturing of baking products, yeasts, and breads, Max Fleischmann and his wife took to Norway accompanied by his sister Bettie and her husband Christian. Bettie kept extensive notes of the voyage in her journal and later published the journal in a luxury, deluxe book for close friends and family.

 

Filled with photogravure illustrations, this book is one of the best early 20th-century sources of the Arctic Sea, Norway, and Greenland covering the behavior of ice and glaciers, weather patterns, polar bears and other arctic animals, and detailed hunting lists of game. Bettie also included a double-page map of the course that their ship the ‘Laura’ took.

 

Interestingly, this first edition was signed by Bettie herself with an inscription that reads:

“This book was issued in limited editions, privately printed and the type distributed. Bettie Fleishmann Holmes.”
