Book Description Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1898 Excerpt: .during the height of the season at Kishotchnaya, as the day was an ideal one for the seals to remain ashore. The weather was perfect, comfortably cool, cloudy, no rain, wind light southeast, half water, rising tide. At the Reef we found on the 10th the same state of things as on Kishotchnaya, viz, a denser accumulation of the females on shore and none to speak of in the water; consequently the rookery looked fuller than it did three days previously at our first visit, and the gaps between the patches appeared more or less closed up. The capacity of Reef rookery for this season (1897) was undoubtedly at its highest to day, yet that characteristic band across the sands was not there, not even a trace, as the fewindividuals which we had noticed on the 13th had now left it. Nothing attests better the decrease of this rookery since I visited it in 1895. Another point brought out by my inspection of the Rering Island rookeries in 1895 was the relative dearth of old bulls as compared with the condition on the Copper Island rookeries. The disproportion of the sexes was still evident on North Rookery in 1897, though much less marked than in 1895, on account of the decrease of the females. It would be waste of time and paper to try to present figures to demonstrate it, as the counts that have been made are utterly worthless. There may have been 150 bulls on the Reef this year, or there may have been 200; there is no way of telling with certainty. The rookery had of necessity to be watched from such a distance that only a fraction of the bulls can be seen. On Kishotchnaya the conditions are somewhat better, but the result of our count is not very satisfactory, as a recital of our experience on July 13 will show. The fact is, that the bulls are .

Book Description Government Printing Office 1898-1899, Washington, 1898. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Illustrated with hundreds of photographs, lithographs, and maps printed in one and two colors. Part I: The History, Condition, and Needs of the Herd of Fur Seals Resorting to the Pribilof Islands by David Starr Jordan and George Archibald Clark. Illustrated by photographs and by drawings from nature by Bristow Adams. 249 pages plus many plates from photographs. Part II: Observations on the Fur Seals of the Pribilof Islands, 1872-1897, as Extracted from the Log of St. Paul Island and as Recorded in the Daily Journal of the Commission of 1896 and 1897. [250]-606 pages. Part III: Special Papers Related to the Fur Seal and to the Natural History of the Pribilof Islands. xii, 629 pages. Part IV: The Asiatic Fur-Seal Islands and Fur-Seal Industry by Leonhard Stejneger. 384 pages. By the late 19th century, the fur seal population was in serious decline due to overhunting. Hunting began soon after the Russian explorer Gerasim Pribilof discovered the islands in the Bering Sea and the rich seal rookeries there in 1786. Following the purchase of Alaska from the Russian government, the United States took a serious interest in the seals and authorized a number of expeditions to the Pribilof islands to study the animals, which were valuable for their dense fur. While the United States government could control seal hunting on the islands, sealers from many nations hunted the animals in the open water. After attempts at an international accord to govern hunting collapsed, the United States and Great Britain agreed to undertake independent scientific studies of the problem; these four volumes represent the American analysis of the issue. In 1911, the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Japan, and Russia signed the North Pacific Fur Seal Convention, the first international treaty to address wildlife preservation. As such, these extensive reports, overseen and partially written by David Starr Jordan, the president of Stanford University, are a landmark in species preservation, and presaged the scientific approach to wildlife conservation that would proliferate in the 20th century. Relatively uncommon as a complete set. Formerly part of a small state fisheries library with a few ink ownership stamps and faint call numbers marked on the spines of three volumes. The hinges in part III are shaken and there is a small surface tear at the outside of the front hinge. The remaining volumes are very good or better in blue pebbled cloth with light wear to the eges. Volume I has the ownership signature of Trevor Kinkaid, a zoologist at the University of Washington in the early 20th century. He was the entomologist on the Harriman Alaska Expedition in 1899.
