Rare Book Monthly Reviews - March - 2023 Issue

The Arctic, Iceland, and Canadiana from Bjarne Tokerud Bookseller

Bjarne Tokerud Bookseller has issued a fantastic catalogue for everyone not afraid of the cold (or at least not afraid of reading about it). It is filled with adventures it's hard to imagine anyone enduring. The catalogue is Arctic Exploration, Iceland & Canadiana. You will travel no farther south than Point Pelee with this collection. It is a tribute to the hardy who settled Canada, stopped in Iceland, and determined to conquer the frigid northland of the Arctic, traveling so far north that every direction you headed was south. These are a handful of items from the over 250 offered.
