Description:

156 pages, profusely illustrated (150 illustrations) that are in color and b&w, with an Introduction by Robert Cushman Murphy and a preface to the pictures by Zephaniah W. Pease. This book is the Popular edition from the first edition of 1926. This book "contains hitherto unpublished matter, such as the log-book of the sloop Manufactor, the oldest whaling log in existence. Here is new light on those much-mooted points, the invention of the schooner and the breathing of the whales; and much whalemen's lore concerning methods of attack and the behavior of the quarry. Here are all the details of whaleship construction, rigging and navigation, gear and craft, and side-lights on the unique personalities of the whalemen from New Beford, Nantucket, and Long Island ports. Here, in short, is the most detailed and superbly illustrated book on American whaling which has been ever been written." FINE- HARDCOVER, brick red cloth covers, with gilt lettering bright on the spine. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
