Book Information

Starbuck, Alexander. History of the American Whale Fishery, From its Earliest Inception to the Year 1876. New York: Argosy-Antiquarian, .

Two volumes.

Note: This book was first published in part IV of the report of the U.S. Commission on Fish and Fisheries, Washington, 1878, and also issued privately by the author in 1878.

Entries for this title are taken not from Starbuck's work, but from Reginald Hegarty's Addendum to "Starbuck" and "Whaling Masters" (New Bedford: New Bedford Free Public Library, 1964), in which Hegarty compiled an index to Starbuck, and also included an addendum with further information on some vessels. Hegarty's addendum is also included in the Index to Ships in Books.
