On board Krusenstern’s Nadezhda was Otto von Kotzebue, son of the German poet August von Kotzebue. In 1815, the young Kotzebue was in command of the second Russian expedition, visiting Chile, Easter Island, the Marshall Islands, Hawaii, and the Northwest coast of America, where he searched unsuccessfully for a passage to the Arctic Ocean. An important shipboard companion was the naturalist and poet Adelbert von Chamisso. This abridged ‘Phillips’ copy of this very important expedition report is of great interest because it contains seven uncoloured aquatint plates of Hawaii and California which are in neither the original nor the full English editions.
