Robert Hale, London, 1992. Here, this celebrated marine writer-artist delineates in this copiously illustrated book the complex history of men and whales. He tells the story of the world's first commercial whalers, the Basques of tenth century France and Spain; of the eighteenth century British and Dutch whalers who virtually eliminated the Greenland whale; of the birth of the whaling industry during the settlement of Australia, New Zealand and South Africa; of the Yankee Sperm Whale fishery out of New Bedford and Nantucket, which rose and fell within a tumultuous hundred year period; of the discovery and description of the vast herds of blue and fin whales in the Antarctic; of whaling in Norway, Japan, Canada, The Azores, and Indonesia. He writes about the massive slaughter of whales - more were killed in the 1960's than in any other time in history - and the world wide movement to protect the whale. Illustrated with 300 photographs, paintings, drawings, and maps. Illustrated dust jacket over Gree covered embossed end boards with quart black cloth bindings. Near fine condition. 542pp. 286 mm x 225 mm.
