Rasmussen's tribute to the work done by his predecessors in Arctic exploration is most generous and discriminating; he shows that he understood their difficulties, though they were not his in the same way, and what they accomplished he is eager to recognize and admire. They, or such of them as remain, in their turn are glad and ready to say that what he and his com panions have added to the sum of Polar knowledge by their detailed mapping of the coast-lands - the fauna, ?ora, and geological formation of the north-western section of Greenland and its connection with the discoveries of the eastern coasts has set the crown on the labours of those who have toiled before him in the same field, and that his fine achievement has for ever put him in the front rank of Polar explorers.
