Admired by Kipling, this is a later edition of a whaling classic, a hunt along the Southern hemisphere, sometimes close to the cold Antarctic climes. Kipling's comment is printed before the preface. 'It is immense - there is no other word. I've never read anything that equals it in its deep sea wonder and mystery'.
