    A journal of a voyage of discovery to the polar regions, in the year 1824

    In His Majesty's ship Griper, G.F. Lyon, captain: with a particular account of the proceedings during that perilous voyage by Paton, John (1825)

    I came across this book and I found the detailed account of the voyage covered many aspects that are often not covered in other books. It tells you about how the sailors were dressed and what food they ate and other interesting information.

    You can download this book at http://www.electricscotland.com/webclans/htol/lyon.html

    I might add there are quite a few descriptions of the Inuits or Eskimos.
