------------trade paperback, a Near Fine copy with just a wee bit of light rubbing, a bit of sunning to spine and spine edges of covers, 349 pages, b&w illustrations, ---"In addition to his achievements as a doctor, meteorologist, and cartographer, Richardson was the first great naturalist to study the North American Arctic. His journal made such an outstanding contribution to ornithology, ichthyology, botany, and geology that much of modern Arctic research is founded upon his observations. Enhanced by fifty-six line drawings and eight maps, Arctic Ordeal will interest a wide audience as well as medical historians, geographers, anthropologists, and botanists."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
