United States Government
Fur Seal Arbitration. Proceedings of the Tribunal of Arbitration, Convened at Paris, under the Treaty Between the United States of America and Great Britain, Concluded at Washington February 29, 1892, for the Determination of Questions between the Two Governments Concerning the Jurisdictional Rights of the United States in the Waters of the Bering Sea
United States Government, 1895. 16 volumes in original black cloth with titles gilt on spines, fine condition. Ex-library with withdrawal stamps, discreet manuscript numbering on title pages, small spine labels. This is the complete record of the lengthy arbitration between the United States and Great Britain regarding the disposition of fur seals in the Pribilof Islands of Alaska and the Bering Sea. Some copies of this review were printed with a separate atlas volume, but this set contains 12 folding maps in volume 3 and 7 in volume 7. Also, volume 16 contains facsimiles of many of the documents from the Alaskan archives which were used as source material in this case. The decision in this case supported Great Britain's position and awarded damages accordingly. Ultimately, however, the recommendations and restrictions on seal hunting which flowed from this case were found to be insufficient and were superceded by regulations passed at the International Fur Seal Convention of 1911.
