London, 1924. ,170pp., plus three color illustrations, six halftones, nine photogravure plates, and one folding map. Original green cloth, stamped in black. Internally very clean. Near fine. Scarce first English edition of this lovely work, published two years after Flaherty's pioneering documentary of the same name. The text recounts Flaherty's experiences among the Eskimos during the 1910s, but the really striking feature of the book is its illustrations, especially the beautiful photogravures, reminiscent of the work of Edward Curtis in the lower forty-eight. A handsome record of Eskimo life in the early 20th century, by an important photojournalist and filmmaker. ARCTIC BIBLIOGRAPHY 5057 (ref). (Inventory #: WRCAM50928)
