"There She Blows": A Narrative of a Whaling Voyage, in the Indian and South Atlantic Oceans
by Ely, Ben-Ezra Stiles
Middletown, Connecticut: Wesleyan University Press, 1971. Hardcover. NF/NF. Black boards with gilt lettering and decoration; map end papers. Sage green dj with illus. xxxiv + 208 pp. with bw frontis and 24 additional bw illus. Edited, with an introduction, notes, and appendices by Curtis Dahl. Ely's personal story of his whaling experiences, written down over the 27 months on board The Emigrant and published before he turned 20. Dahl has set Ely's narrative firmly in a matrix of other relevant material: a biographica introduction; copious notes to the main text; Ely's own account of his religious conversion while at sea; further facts about the vessel, voyage, and crew; and more. Published for The Marine Historical Association, Incorporated. Fascinating!
