About this Item

Card covers with bw photo on the front, some spotting, discolouration and grubbiness to covers, pages yellowing but generally very good internally. In May 1951 a profoundly deaf 30 year old Scotsman called James Duthie ¿ known to his local community as ¿Dummy Jim¿ ¿ cycled solo on a return trip from the small fishing town of Cairnbulg in the north east of Scotland to the Arctic Circle. The round trip of 6000+ miles took three months and was managed on a budget of just £12. On returning to Scotland, Duthie wrote about his travels and in 1955 a slim volume called ¿I Cycled into the Arctic Circle¿ was published. James apparantly sold copies of the book door to door to cover the cost of future excursions - if so, this book may not be the 1st impression but in any case is a rare survival.
