Little, Brown And Company, 1973. First edition, as stated. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good except as noted.. Clean, tight 8vo, 302pp. Dust jacket has several small open tears and some chipping to the top edge. Front edge has several small brown spots that are probably coffee or tea?, but they don't bleed through to the pages. In spite of Native American Eskimo warning of a short season and harsh winter, 32 American whaling vessels carrying 1200 officers and crew members, elected to cruise in the treacherous waters off Alaska's Point Barrow. The vessels were helplessly traped or crushed in packed ice. The masters had to abandon the fleet where it was and take to the sea in small boats. Somehow they were all eventually rescued. It's quite a story!

Description:
Little, Brown and Company:, 1973. The first edition stated, 302 pages, illustrated. "Of the thirty-nine American vessels which sailed into Arctic waters "to chase the bowhead" during the summer of 1871, only seven heeded Eskimo warnings that the season would be unusually short and the winter unusually severe. The rest- thirty-two of the finest whaling vessels in existence, carrying 1200 officers and crewmen- elected to cruise in the treacherous waters off Alaska's Point Barrow. Now suddenly, all thirty-two ships lay helplessly trapped or crushed in gale-driven pack ice. This book tells for the first time the full story of this disaster and the rescue of the shipwrecked victims- a rescue that, incredibly enough, did not result in the loss of a single human life." FINE- HARDCOVER, VERY GOOD- DUST JACKET. Dust jacket protected with a clear plastic acid-free jacket.. First Edition Stated. Hard Cover. Fine-/Very Good-. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
