The Faeröes and Iceland; Studies in Island Life


THE name of Mr. Nelson Annandale has been of late years so intimately associated with the Malay Peninsula and its zoology and ethnology that it comes somewhat as a surprise to find it on the title-page of a work dealing with such totally different surroundings as those of the Færöes and Iceland. It appears, however, that between the years 1896 and 1903 the author spent several summer holidays in these remote islands, and contributed a series of articles on his experiences to Blackwood's Magazine and the Scotsman, and that it is these delightful articles, in a more expanded and elaborated form, with the omission of certain purely technical details, which form the basis of the work before us.
