Christian Melodies' front cover
A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. A cloth bound pocket book ('Christian Melodies') found in an abandoned boat at Erebus Bay, King William Island, in May 1859 by the McClintock Search Expedition 1857-1859. An inscription on the flyleaf to 'G.G' indicates that it belonged to Lt Graham Gore, HMS 'Erebus'. The book was published by Thomas Ward & Co., 27 Paternoster Row in 1836 and is a book of Christian verses rather than a hymn book.
