BULLEN, Frank T. The Cruise of the "Cachalot" round the World after Sperm Whales. London, Smith, Elder & Co., 1899.
8vo. Publisher's original blue cloth, lettered in gilt, image of whale blocked in gilt on upper board; pp. xx, 379, 8 wood-engraved plates (including frontispiece with tissue guard), 1 folding map; only very light rubbing to extremities, a very clean and attractive copy.
Admired by Kipling, this is the fouth impression of a nautical and whaling classic, a hunt along the Southern hemisphre, sometimes close to the cold Antarctic climes. This fourth printing is misleadingly called 'second edition' on the title-page. Internally and externally is is identical to the first printing of 1898.
See Jenkins p. 85 for other editions and Spence 215 for the first British edition of 1898.
