“The Land's End” is 1843 work by Argentinian naturalist William Henry Hudson. Profusely illustrated and wonderfully-written, this descriptive illustration of Land's End in Cornwall, England will appeal to all with an interest in this beautiful spot, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Hudson's work.

He was one of the founding members of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and is best known for his novel “Green Mansions” (1904). Other notable works include “A Little Boy Lost” (1905) and “Far Away and Long Ago” (1918), which has since been adapted into a film. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
