[ANDRÉE,, SALOMON AUGUST].
[Two original photographs from Andrée's Arctic Balloon Expedition in 1897]. Credited to G. & H. Hasselblad, Gothenburg, June 1897.
. Two albumen prints (10.9 x 15.5 cm) mounted in original printed passé-partout, housed in contemporary frames, rubbed. One photo depicts the ship "Svensksund" on its way to Svalbard in the summer of 1897 for a second balloon expedition headed by the Swedish scientist Andrée with the objective of reaching the North Pole. The other photo depicts Andrée together with the participants of the expedition on board ship, probably taken by Jonas Stadling. The photograph shows Axel Stake (engineer), Carl August Ehrensvärd (Captain of the ship), Christian Lembke (medical doctor), S.A. Andrée and his two balloon companions Knut Fraenkel and Nils Strindberg. After a failed balloon expedition in 1896 a new attempt was made by Andrée, Strindberg and Fraenkel the following year. In July the expedition took off from Danes Island at Svalbard but flew for only 65 hours before the balloon was forced down on the pack ice about 300 km north of White Island. Several expeditions were sent out in search of the missing balloon team but without any success. A Norwegian vessel discovered the remains of the expedition at White Island (Kvit¿ya) in 1930.
