I back to my publication – Bewick’s ‘History of British Birds:’ the letterpress thereof I cared little for, as a rule conversing; and but there have been convinced introductory pages that, baby as i used to be, i couldn't go rather as a clean. They have been these which deal with of the haunts of sea-fowl; of ‘the solitary rocks and promontories’ through them in basic terms inhabited; of the coast of Norway, studded with isles from its southern extremity, the Lindeness, or Naze, to the North Cape – ‘Where the Northern Ocean, in great whirls, Boils around the bare, depression isles Of farthest Thule; and the Atlantic surge Pours in one of the stormy Hebrides. ’ Nor might I cross disregarded the recommendation of the awful beaches of Lapland, Siberia, Spitzbergen, Nova Zembla, Iceland, Greenland, with ‘the large sweep of the Arctic quarter, and people forlorn areas of dreary area – that reservoir of frost and snow, the place enterprise fields of ice, the buildup of centuries of winters, glazed in Alpine heights above heights, encompass the pole, and concentre the improved rigours of maximum chilly. ’ of those death-white geographical regions I shaped an idea of my very own: shadowy, like several the half-comprehended notions that waft dim via children’s brains, yet unusually amazing.
