“Russia’s Arctic Seas” – a fundamental classical work with the subtitle “Essays on the History of Research” by the famous Arctic explorer V. Yu. Vize. From the date of its only publication in 1948 (when it was titled “Soviet Arctic Seas”) was a reference book, encyclopedia, for all those interested in the history of Arctic exploration. In 2008, the Marine Arctic Complex Expedition (MACE), together with the publishing house “Europa Editions,” rereleased this work in a series of books “The International Polar Year 2007–2008” in two volumes, edited the text of the 1948 edition, added higher-quality illustrations, and changed the original title of the book.
