Facsimile Edition (2010)In this volume of "Meddelelser om Grönland" the ethnographic results of three Danish expeditions to East Greenland are combined, namely: (1) The expedition of Captain GUSTAV HOLM, the discoverer of Ammassalik, carried out in 1883-85, (2) Captain G. AMDRUP'S expedition,
entitled The Carlsberg Fund Expedition to East Greenland, carried out in 1898-1900, and (3) W. THALBITZER'S voyage and wintering
at Ammassalik in 1905-06, carried out in accordance with the instructions of the Commission for the Direction of the Geological and Geographical Investigations in Greenland, the expenses being defrayed by the Carlsberg Fund.
The bulk of the volume consists of a new edition, translated into English, of the ethnographic portion of G. HOLM's Den Östgrönlandske
Expedition (The East Greenland Expedition), which appeared in Danish in "Meddelelser om Grönland", vols. IX and X, Copenhagen 1888-89. The issue of this English edition, containing new illustrations
and fresh information, was primarily occasioned by the publication
of the ethnographic results of the Carlsberg Fund Expedition.
