About this Item

INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "Best Wishes, Brian C. Bursey". From the Introduction: "Vast, wild,and unpopulated, Labrador sits as a distant and little-known appendage on the northeastern corner of North America. Eight hundred kilometres from east to west, more than a thousand kilometres from north to south, Labrador ranges from the rich boreal landscapes of the central forests to the treeless tundra and majestic mountain ranges of the north coast. Most outsiders think of Labrador as snow covered and forbidding, its coasts locked in ice for much of the year, only to be released to the scourge of biting flies during a brief, damp summer. But Labrador also has a gentler side, as when the forests and lakes of central Labrador shimmer in the clear, windless days of late winter, or when the iceberg-studded waters of Labrador Sea slide, benign and mirror smooth, past the dramatic headlands of the Kigapaits.Labrador is both immeasurably old and strikingly new." 112 full-color photographic illustrations (many full-page) with accompanying descriptive cations/passages. 111 pages. Minor bumping to top of DJ spine and top corners and minor shelf rubbing characteristically on blackish DJ cover, elsewise a fine, bright, clean, tight, Larbrador lover, collector-worthy copy! *NOTE: Due to size/weight of book additional shipping will be required for out-of-U.S. shipment in accordance with destination. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 005784
