And they spent virtually an entire month at sea, observing a truly astounding array of wildlife: finback and killer whales, sealions, seals, and dolphins; albatrosses, sheathbills, skuas, petrels, cormorants, and (of course) multitudes of penguins." - from the dj.Vg in unclipped dj. 30.00

Henry Walter Bates, b. February 8, 1825, Leicester; d. February 16, 1892, London), was an important mid-century English naturalist, whose main contributions centred around mimicry in the animal kingdom.

"The Naturalist on the River Amazons" was so important and highly regarded upon its publication, that Charles Darwin dubbed it to be among the best books of natural history travel-writing ever publishing in England.

"In the autumn of 1847 Mr. A.[lfred] R.[ussell] Wallace, who has since acquired wide fame in connection with the Darwinian theory of Natural Selection, proposed to me a joint expedition to the river Amazons, for the purpose of exploring the Natural History of its banks; the plan being to make for ourselves a collection of objects, dispose of the duplicates in London to pay expenses, and gather facts, as Mr. Wallace expressed it in one his letters, 'towards solving the problem of the origin of species'. [...] My companion left the country at the end of four years; [...] I remained seven years longer, returning home in July, 1959. [...] The part of the Amazons region where I resided longest being unexplored country to the Naturalist, no less than 8000 of the species here enumerated were new to science."- from the preface.

"The history of Alaska is filled with stories of new land and new riches - and ever present are new people with competing views over how the valuable resources should be used: Russians exploiting a fur empire; explorers checking rival advances; prospectors stampeding to the clarion call of 'Gold!'; soldiers battling out adecisive chapter in world war; oil wildcatters looking for a different kin d of mineral wealth; and always at the core of these disputes is the question of how the land is to be used and by whom. While some want Alaska to remain static, others are in the vanguard of change. Alaska: Saga of a Bold Land shows that there are no easy answers on either side and that Alaska willalways be crossing the next frontier." - rear cover. Very good. 12.50

BRUEMMER, Fred (Principal Writer and Photographer). The Arctic World. (Toronto) : Key Porter Books, (1985). First Printing. Pp 256. Folio, blue cloth.A general work full of excellent photographs (colour and b/w). "Encompassi ng the northern reaches of seven countries and an area of 28 million squaremiles, the Arctic is, in fact, one natural realm where plants, animals and humans have learned to live in a hostile climate." "Taylor has smoothly or ganized essays by Bruemmer and five other writers who discuss seven countries in the Arctic circle: history, people, animal and plant life. Included are 130 shots in color, displaying the grandeur and austerity of mountains, icebergs and frozen seas, as well as the glories of blooms and natural wonders unique to the Northern fastnesses. Black-and-white photos, no less striking, introduce the reader to the Lapps, Eskimo families, kittiwakes, walrus communities, polar bears and other wildlife in their habitats. The book'sunspoken but palpable plea is that the Arctic must be safeguarded and pres erved from corruption." - review on dj.
