E. Norman Flayderman; Scrimshaw and Scrimshanders Whales and Whalemen.; New Milford, Conn.; N. Flayderman & Co., 1972. First Edition. 8 1/2 in. x 10 1/2 in. Very good condition with worn dj. Long out of print.
The first book to seriously address the art of scrimshaw, this is still considered the most definitive work on the subject. Profusely illustrated with much informative text putting in context this nautical art with the history of 19th century whaling.
