Description: [ Books ] * Austro-Hungarian North Pole Expedition. Ship's ensign of the 'Tegetthoff' Expedition, led by Karl Weyprecht (1838-1881) and Julius von Payer (1841-1915) made in 1872-74, red, white and red/green horizontal stripes embroidered with the red, white, green and brown Austrian and Hungarian arms charged with the crowned state arms, a little wear and two careful repairs at hoist edge, approx. 69 x 112 cm, together with a small rectangular brass display plaque 'Flagge des im Polareis untergegangenen Tegetthoff' This is the official ship's flag as used on this famous expedition which resulted in the discovery of Kaiser-Franz-Josef-Land on 30 August 1873, after the 'Tegetthoff' had become ice-locked and started drifting north-west of Nowaja Semlja. This was the first land discovery in the European arctic sector for 277 years. Under the leadership of Payer the scientists used sledges to reach the northern point of 82 degrees on 12 April 1874. On 20 May the 'Tegetthoff' was abandoned and the crew undertook the difficult return with sledges and boats, arriving back in Vienna on 25 September 1874, 453 days after the expedition began. The 'Tegetthoff' has never been seen since. See illustration 8 inside front cover of this catalogue. (2)
