Item Description: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from History of the American Whale Fishery From Its Earliest Inception to the Year 1876 The North American Review, in 1834, in an article on the Whale Fishery, says, A few years since, two Russian discovery ships came in sight of a group of cold, inhospi table islands in the Antarctic Ocean. The commander imagined himself a discoverer, and doubtless was prepared with drawn sword and with the ?ag of his sovereign ?ying over his head to take possession in the name of the Czar. At this time he was becalmed in a dense fog. Judge of his surprise, when the fog cleared away, to see a little sealing sloop from Connecticut as quietly riding between his ships as if lying in the waters of Long Island Sound. He learned from the captain that the islands were already well known, and that he had just returned from exploring the shores of a new land at the south; upon which the Russian gave vent to an expression too hard to be repeated, but sufficiently significant of his opinion of American enterprise. After the captain of the sloop, he named the discovery palmer s Land, in which the American acquiesced, and by this name it appears to be designated on all the recently-published Russian and English charts. A similar experience awaited the English ship Caribou, Captain Cabins, who came in sight of Hurd s Island, and, like the Russian, thought it hitherto unknown land. The similarity was carried still further by the appearance of the schooner Oxford, of Fairhaven (tender to the Arab), the captain of which informed him that the island was discovered by them eighteen months before.

Item Description: Argosy-Antiquarian Ltd., New York, 1964. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. Reissue. Lacks slipcase. Two tiny spots on spine of first volume, spines lightly toned. vii, 407; 408-779 pp. 8vo. 1964 reissue of the work originally published in Part IV of the Report of the U.S. Commission on Fish and Fisheries, Washington, 1878. An edition was also issued privately by the author in the same year. This limited edition of 750 copies includes a new introduction by Stuart C. Sherman. Photographic frontispiece of author, maps on endpapers. Starbuck also wrote a history of Nantucket (not included here), which was an important hub for the whaling industry. Can we also take a moment to appreciate the fact that there exists a history of whaling by someone named Starbuck? We feel confident that Herman Melville would approve. This is more than simple coincidence, though: Starbuck was a prominent Quaker family name in Nantucket. Several of them were whalers, and an island in the South Pacific whaling grounds is named after them.Keywords: AMERICAN HISTORY WHALING INDUSTRY WHALE FISHER FISHERIES WHALERS.
