Description

Roches et Montagnes des Alpes Françaises du Nord by Henri Widmer

Roches et Montagnes des Alpes Françaises du Nord by Henri Widmer Coutterand is primarily a photo book of the peaks of the northern French alps, with minimal captions in French. The small diagrams showing the reader where important features are found, and details of parking places and the geology visible in the photos, is easy to understand. In essence, this is a fine book on the geology found here and how to interpret the rocks visible on the surface,

From the back cover:

Ce livre propose une sélection de 120 photos de montagnes situées dans les Alpes françaises du Nord. Ces photos sont classées en douze chapitres correspondant aux douze roches qui constituent la quasi-totalité des montagnes de la région. En parcourant les pages de ce livre, vous découvrirez que chaque roche a son style de relief, caractérisé par l'allure des crêtes, la couleur et la pente des versants, le ravinement, les éboulis, la présence ou non de strates... Vous apprendrez ainsi à identifier de loin la roche constituant une montagne. Plutôt que gravir tel ou tel sommet, le promeneur se dira qu'il est en terrain calcaire, ou qu'il gravit un sommet de quartzite. Il aura une autre vision de la montagne : une vision par les roches. Ce livre donne également, pour chaque roche, une description et des photographies, afin de pouvoir les reconnaître à partir de cailloux. Enfin, quelques notions élémentaires de géologie, non nécessaires à la lecture de ce livre, sont proposées : comment la nature "fabrique" les roches ? Comment repérer les strates, s'il y en a ? Pourquoi y a-t-il trois familles de massifs?

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.
