Book Description Reed, Wellington, 1976. Hard Cover. Condition: NF. Dust Jacket Condition: VG+. Photos, Maps (illustrator). 1st. The sub- Antarctic Campbell Islands are about 600km to the south of NZ's southernmost point. Discovered in 1810 the island was visited by sealers and whalers, occasional scientific study groups and in the latter 1800s and early 1900s sheeping farming was undertaken, but the extreme weather conditions were against man and animal. The outbreak of WWII saw renewed interest in the island and a cost-watching and weather station was set up there, with the latter role continued thereafter. A supply depot for shipwreck survivors was maintained there for many years and the island continues to attract the attention of scientists studying its unique environment and ecology. Among his appendices the author examines the "Lady of the Heather" legend, about a daughter of Bonnie Prince Charlie being marooned there. 182 pages including five appendices, bibliography, index, 41 b/w photos, colour e/paper maps, other map, documents. Brown hard covers with gilt spine titles, NF, ditto text block, no inscriptions. Wrap-round pictorial DJ VG+ with few chips, crease top edge, light wear at spine hinges/flap folds. Size: 22cm By 14.5cm. Seller Inventory # 003572
