SIGNED, dated and warmly inscribed to the title page by the author. Like new, appears unread, unclipped and not remaindered. The interior is clean and unmarked excepting previous owner's neat name to the front pastedown. Bright gilt titles to spine, corners are sharp and square. Unclipped dustjacket is bumped and rubbed to extremities, handful of tears to the top edge, soiling and shelfwear to show. Now protected in archival brodart jacket. The life story of one of the few white men to earn the Inuit name, "angutimmarik" or "a real arctic man", high praise indeed. Lyall spent the better part of fifty years above the Arctic circle and took umbrage with the mountains of misinformation about the people and the land of the far north.
