Sirius Books Angus and Robertson Limited, Sydney. 1963. Revised Edition. Starting with the old time whalers of Australia in 1826 when 416 tons of sperm oil was gathered through the next fifty years when the catch (over 38,000 tons) almost wiped out the whale population peaking in 1933 with 3483 tons lowest in 1875 with 13 tons.- However all these figures looked tame for in 1930 the Ship Kosmos harvested 19,330 tons in four months the rape had started. This then is the story of whaling in Australasian waters and other southern seas, from the days of old to modern times. A magnum opus so comprehensive and detailed that it is likely to remain the authority on the subject. For the general reader nothing more interesting on Australian whaling has been written.Slightly worn soft cover. 195x125 mm 285 pp.
