Description

Danish Greenland: Its People And Its Products is a book written by Henry Rink and first published in 1877. The book is a comprehensive study of the people and products of Greenland, a Danish territory located in the Arctic region. The author, who was a Danish ethnologist and explorer, provides a detailed account of the customs, traditions, and way of life of the indigenous Greenlandic people, known as Inuit. He also describes the natural resources and products of the region, including furs, fish, and minerals. The book is based on Rink’s personal experiences and observations during his travels in Greenland, as well as on historical and scientific sources. It is an important work of Arctic exploration and anthropology, and provides valuable insights into the culture and economy of Greenland during the late 19th century. The book is written in English and is accessible to readers interested in Arctic studies, ethnography, and history.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
