Voyage Through The Antarctic

by Adams, Richard and Ronald Lockley. Photographs By Peter Hirst-Smith

Condition: Near Fine/Near Fine

London: Allan Lane, 1982. The Antarctic is the least explored area on the earth, and the most densley populated with wildlife. A natural sanctuary of spectacular beauty, created and preserved by the sheer extremity of its climate, it has proved the perfect subject for the combined talents of the novelist Richard Adams, and the naturalist Ronald Lockley who, in this book, describe their experiences on their voyage aboard the 'Lindblad Explorer' through the Antarctic.... down from Cape Horn and up to New Zealand. With the aid of a superb selection of colour and b/w photographs by Peter Hirst-Smith, they have produced a unique and highly personal record of a region that may soon be in danger. Fep shows a remainder 'R'. This book remains square, bright and handsome in its photo, price-intact dust jacket. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
