A fine copy of the second German edition of this famous work on fishery and whaling in the Arctic Seas, containing maps of the North Polar region, Greenland, Iceland, Svalbard, Jan-Mayen and Novaya-Zemlya. The beautifully engraved plates show the ships of whalers, whales, hunting sceneries etc., of which the large folding one is by A. Salm after a drawing by van der Hem. The original Dutch edition was published in 1720. "Zorgdrager's work is by far the most important of the early authorities on the Northern Whalefishery, and must always be one of the chief sources of information for the early history on the subject" (Allen 177).
