Description

Les Plus Beaux Glaciers du Mont-Blanc et des Alpes Suisses by Sylvain Coutterand

Les Plus Beaux Glaciers du Mont-Blanc et des Alpes Suisses by Sykvain Coutterand is a guide, in French, to the glaciers of the Mont-Blanc area and the Swiss alps. It contains maps and diagrams of the glaciers and surrounding mountains, and plenty of high-quality colour photographs illustrating the region and encouraging visits by walkers and mountaineers.

From the back cover:

Le massif du Mont-Blanc et les Alpes suisses présentent une couverture glaciaire encore exceptionnelle malgré le réchauffement climatique. Il existe peu d'endroits dans les Alpes où l'ensemble du phénomène glaciaire soit aussi facilement accessible à partir des vallées habitées. La première partie de cet ouvrage est destinée à comprendre le fonctionnement d'un glacier. Des exemples concrets permettent d'apporter des éléments de réponses aux questions que chacun se pose : qu'est-ce qu'un glacier ? Comment se forme la glace ? Comment s'écoule un glacier ? Comment découvrir les traces des anciennes glaciations dans le paysage ? La part la plus importante de l'ouvrage propose au lecteur d'explorer le milieu glaciaire à travers vingt-quatre randonnées de tous niveaux. Ces excursions ont pour objectif de découvrir les paysages grandioses de l'environnement glaciaire et de comprendre la vie des glaciers, aujourd'hui confrontés au réchauffement climatique.

STOCK ALLOCATION

Our goods for advertised for sale with postage costs included; selecting the destination other than the UK will alter the price, to take into account the increased carriage charges. 

If stock is limited, for example with a single copy of a second-hand book, it will be assigned to UK stock. If you require posting to an address outside the UK, you will not be able to place this order, even though stock is available. We regret this, but the software has limitations. If this is the case, please contact us to enable the options you require.

Please see our FAQs relating to deliveries, and the Delivery page linked from the bottom of each page, before placing your order if time is an important element for your order.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS

On 1 July 2021 the EU removed all exemptions for tax and customs duty on low value items posted from the UK to the EU, meaning that although VAT is 0% on books and magazines in the UK, VAT is charged within the EU and the tax (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

We are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties prepaid; as a small company, it is a long way outside our abilities to engage with an agent to do so. All items are therefore mailed as DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid). Ordering any item from Wild Places requires that you accept responsibility for paying the VAT applicable in your country and any other local charges on delivery.

To be clear: Wild Places will NOT cover any charges levied by your country; it is your responsibility to accept these when placing an order. We apologise for the situation, but it is outside our control. Refusal to pay charges upon delivery will not be accepted as a reason for refunding in full any returned items.

NOTE: Norway and Switzerland are outside the EU and orders will be filled as normal.
