Illustrations taken from Quebec periodicals: expeditions in the arctic archipelago (BAnQ)
Dating from the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, these illustrations taken from Quebec periodicals shed light on the wave of expeditions devoted to reaching the northern summit with a view to claiming sovereignty over the North Pole. There are old engravings of the ship Fram on which the Norwegian Fridtjof Nansen made the first transpolar drift, an image illustrating the departure of Captain J. E. Bernier during his Canadian boreal expedition, etc.
