Excerpt from A History of the Whale Fisheries: From the Basque Fisheries of the Tenth Century to the Hunting of the Finner Whale at the Present Date

Necessarily some of the subject-matter is only of interest to the specialist, but whaling is so unique in many respects - in the romance of the life of the whalers, and in the natural history of one of the most remarkable groups of living creatures - that even detailed studies of the subject are not without interest.

The romance of the whalers' life can only be realised by a perusal of the original writings of the whalers. In this book the main facts of the progress of the whaling trade have been marshalled. In many, if not in most cases, these facts speak for themselves. If within the next few decades whaling is not become entirely extinct, owing to the practical disappearance from the seas of the globe of the animals whose presence is necessary to its continued existence, it is imperative that further steps should be taken to regulate the industry by international action. Otherwise a most interesting group of marine animals will be hunted to the verge of extinction, and a great natural asset rendered Worthless to enrich a small group of speculators and capitalists. This book has been written in the h0pe that, before it is too late, steps will be taken to control this ruthless destruction.
