London Methuen 1989 0413423506 / 9780413423504 First Hard Fine Fine 8vo - over 7 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is price clipped. 228 pages. 18 illustrations. This is the story of one man's crusade to stop the savage, centuries-old hunting of seals on the frozen wastes off Canada's eastern seaboard. After a campaign lasting for more than 20 years, his fight culminated triumphantly in the European Parliament passing legislation that brought the grisly trade in seal fur to a grinding halt. Davies paid a heavy price for his victory - he was jailed under new laws rushed through the Canadian Parliament, suffered health problems, was caught up in a murder investigation and was finally hounded out of Canada to take refuge in the United States. But the fight went on - and continues, for in the International Fund for Animal Welfare, Davies has built up an organisation that tackles the problems of cruelty to animals on a worldwide scale.
