About This Item

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1935. First edition of Kent's boldly illustrated account of his visit to Greenland. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated with over eighty illustrations by Rockwell Kent. Very good in a good dust jacket. Ownership inscription. Salamina, the story of his years in Greenland, is Rockwell Kent's longest and richest book. Probably Kent's best painting has been done in Greenland; for he found it an ideal place to work. The setting was amazingly beautiful; the native people became his close friends and welcomed him, unreservedly, into the community life. His story of his years there is a true chronicle of may curious and romantic happenings, and a narrative which, in style and in richly varied content, reflects perfectly the remote and beautiful world of North Greenland.
