LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Cassell & Co, publishers, London - first UK edition, 1958. hardcover, 5¾" x 8½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. GOOD book in GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Eleven major maps, appendices (30-pages) with Whaling Chronology, Evolution of Whale Tails, Comparative Sizes, and illustrated list of Living Whales; plus Bibliography by Periods and Subjects; and Index. To follow the whale is to follow the whole course of one of the most important aspects of human history. It is virtually the story of the conquest of our planet Earth; a history in which man is almost anonymous. Here is the triumph of the puny and of the twilight of the mighty. Excellent history!
