John Dundas Cochrane, inscription on front flyleaf, "Ivan Khokhran, his book". Captain John Dundas Cochrane, RN (1780-1825) was an intrepid explorer and author of Narrative of a Pedestrian Journey through Russia and Siberian Tartary (1820). He walked across Siberia to Kamchatka where he married a local woman with whom he returned. Cochrane's biographer, Charles Knight, commented rather uncharitably that "the eccentricities of this most hardy and indefatigable traveller sometimes approach to insanity". Cochrane died of fever in what is now Venezuela, having travelled to South America with the intention of crossing it on foot.
