LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Henry Z. Walk, Inc. A Division of David McKay Company, Inc. New York. 1976. Scrimshaw is more than scratched images on sperm whale's teeth, or other ivory, it is an art form where the sailor scratched out the history of his trade and the industry of his ship - sealing, whaling, pearling etc. Scrimshaw also allowed the scrimshander the means to express his love either by a simple message incised into a tooth or by a gift painstakingly carved into a practical household item, a swift, candle sticks, egg cups, or a pie crimper. These items and thousands of others are described in detail. Nicked dust jacket over brown buckram covered end boards. Very good condition. 271pp. 257 x 180 mm
