Latitude North

We’re delighted – no, scrub C._W._R._D._Moseleythat, we’re proud – to be publishing a rather special book by the scholar and writer Charles Moseley. Latitude North is his account of a life-long love affair with the northern lands and seas, from his first voyage as a trainee deckhand on a deep sea trawler to his return to the northlands as the guest lecturer on an Arctic cruise ship. Defying categorisation, it combines history, literature, travel writing, botany and science, ranging from latest discoveries on pre-Christian navigation to the impact of development on some of the most remote settlements in the world. And while it has the erudition and insight you’d expect from a Fellow of a Cambridge college, the author has lived every moment and visited every location, from the ice-bound coast of Spitzbergen to the Viking settlements in Greenland and Newfoundland.

Latitude North will be published this autumn.
