Colour Plates, Fine Binding, Illustrated, Very Scarce, With Dustwrapper

Illustrated with 50 illustrations, some of which are in colour, and four maps. Collated, complete. Roland Svensson (1910- 2003), was a Swedish artist, writer and yachtsman. Here he provides an evocative account of several voyages he made to the Scottish islands of St. Kilda (the Outer Hebrides) and Foula, Fair Isle and Out Skerries (Shetland). The story of his travels have been translated to English by Albert Read and are accompanied by beautiful illustrations by the author.
