Scottish Arctic Whaling

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Between 1750 and 1900, Scottish whalers, sailing in extraordinarily hazardous conditions, caught around 20,000 bowhead whales in the seas around East Greenland, Davis Strait and Baffin Bay. By the mid 19th century, Scots had a near monopoly on Arctic oil and bone, but depleted stocks and the First World War ended its profitability. Sanger’s study gives a detailed account of this previously little-known but important Scottish industry.
