Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good -

Edition: New Revised Edition


A Fine copy of the new revised edition (1965), Crisp,whistle-clean, unmarked, stiff, with no edge wear but only has a slight thin stain on bottom page edges that separates it from pristine. The dj is bright and complete, has a little edge wear to the 2 upper corners and head of spine and some soiling on back and a little on front, and is price-clipped . Forward by Gavin Maxwell. "Once in a while, very rarely, one reads a book whose quality of distinction is apparent before any analysis and without the exercise of critical faculty. I would find it difficult. and insulting, to compare this book to any other; rather, it recalls some splendid cave drawing, telling as much of man as of beast, and leaving us in awe of each." Gavin Maxwell. " David Thomson went to Ireland and the Western Isles in search of the legends and their ramifications. In this book he presents, in the form of a personal adventure, what he saw and heard -- the islands , their people, and their oral literature and traditional music. He gives us an excellent picture of the Gaelic world as it is today (1954), but this is almost incidental: his obsession is with the humanity of seals, both in fact and in legend." --- from dj flap.
