Book Description:
Some portions of this book have been published as separate articles in the Altbcrican , Worlds T170rk, Alctropolita z, O ttilzg, Aratio zctl Gcograpl ic, and other magazines, but by far the greater part of it is new. There have been many pleasurable sides to the work, but one of the most delightful has been the friends that I have made, and my cordial reception by the officials of the whaling companies in whatever corner of the world I have chanced to be. Space will not permit ine to nlention all those to whom I am indebted and who have contributed to the success of the various expeditions, but I wish first to express my gratitude to the Trustees of the American Museum of Natural History, under whose auspices all n yw ork upon cetaceans has been conducted, and especially to President Henry Fairfield Osborn for his encouragement and wise counsel. Captains I. N. Hibberd and John Barneson have never failed in kindness and the President and Directors of the Toyo Hogei Kabushiki Kaisha of Osaka, and Mr. D. Ogiwara of Shimonoseki, Japan, are in a large measure responsible for the success of the work conducted in the Orient. Not only did these gentlemen freely extend the courtesies of their ships and stations, but also presented to the American nlluseunl of hTatural History skeletons of all the large Japanese cetaceans, which are the only specinlens of Asiatic whales in America.
