Title: Fur Seal Island - an Environment in Peril
Description: London, Souvenir Press. 1990, First Edition. (ISBN: 0285629697). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. A Very Good+ unmarked copy with some light foxing to fore edge and age darkening to page edges with VG+ non price clipped dustjacket. The northern fur seal leads one of the most remarkable lives of all animals, one that, for two hundred years, has been closely bound up with man and now, although no longer slaughtered for its pelt, its numbers have declined, and with it all the marine life in the North Pacific. The author of this beautiful and haunting book tells the story from the experience he gained on the Pribilof Islands, the remote cluster of cloud covered, rain soaked islands beyond the Aleutian Chain, where every summer the female seals return from their winter haunts off southern California to bear their black coated pups and mate with the ferocious bulls. 33 colour photographs and 2 maps. A1C. Very Good/Very Good.
