About this eBook

Author Anonymous
LoC No. 24020102
Title Catching of the whale and seal : or, Henry Acton's conversation to his son William on the whale and seal fishery
Alternate Title Whale and seal fishery
Original Publication Salem, MA: Ives and Jewett, 1838.
Note Likely not by "Henry Acton," though sometimes attributed that way. An 1837 book from the same Ives and Jewett publisher is: "Woodland cottage, or, Henry and Emma Acton's conversations to their children, on the animal and vegetable world. Compiled by a mother for her children." One of the two children in that story is also named "William," so both books seem likely to be about the same fictional Acton family.
