Description:

Dodd, Mead & Co., 1947. Bullen's own account as the First Mate of the whaler Splendid out of New Bedford, and its travels through the Pacific whaling grounds. "Bullen describes a violent cyclone at sea, gives extremely detailed accounts of the extraction of whale oil from blubber, and recounts the death-struggles between a whale and a giant squid. The book ranks next to Melville's Moby dick among the classics works on whaling". Rudyard Kipling wrote of Bullen's tale: 'It is immense, there is no other word. I've never read anything that equals it in its deep-sea wonder and mystery? It's a new world that you've opened the door to? 301 pps. Bookseller Inventory #
