Product Description

MIchael McManus; A Treasury of American Scrimshaw, A Collection of the Useful and Decorative; Penguin Studio; 1997; First Edition; dj. In this well illustrated book, the author eschews the purely decorative forms of scrimshaw such as sperm whale teeth, walrus tusks, decorated pan bones, etc., and focuses his attention on the utilitarian forms of the whalemen’s art, fanciful and plain, from the collections of four American whaling museums. Two hundred beautiful color plates.
