Whaling Broadside - List of Shipping Owned in New-London October 1st, 1842. Employed in the Whale Fishery &ct.
New London, CT: A.G. Seaman, 1842. Single sheet, 22 x 18 inches, with decorative type border enclosing a printed area of 17 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches "With an account of the oil and bone brought into New-London, from April 1, 1842 to October 1, 1842." Fifty vessels are named, with information on tonnage, owner and date of sailing. A smaller box in the lower right corner lists twenty vessels and the amounts of "sperm oil, whale oil, elephant oil and bone" landed in that port between April and October 1842. All the information conforms with that given in Starbuck except for the ship "Robert Bourne" spelled "Robert Bowne in this broadside, and the schooner "Pacific" listed in the broadside as having sailed in 1842, though it is not listed in Starbuck. This is a rare broadside. No copies appear in Worldcat, AAS, or any other collections that I have searched. Old fold marks, Three inch tear along right center fold with no loss.
