Universe Books, 1978, 
MATTHEWS, L. Harrison. Penguins, Whalers, and Sealers : A Voyage of Discovery. New York: Universe Books, (1978). First US Edition. Pp 165. 8vo, blue cloth. A naturalist's lively appreciation of Antarctic fauna, particularly of the perennially fascinating penguin. As H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh expresses it in his Foreword, "Penguins have a charm all of their own. They arenot exactly the most beautiful of birds, but they have an elegant air abou t them which is almost unique. Paradoxically, they are also alone among birds and most animals in that they are quite definitely comic. Added to all this is that their sexes are so alike and the climate of the Antarctic is soharsh that their particular problems of mating and breeding defy the imagi nation."

164 McINTYRE, Joan, (ed.) MOWAT, Farley Mind in the Waters : A Book to Celebrate the Consciousness of Whales and Dolphins. First Edition in dustjacket
Charles Scribner's Sons / Sierra Club, 1974, ISBN:0684139952 
McINTYRE, Joan, (ed.). Mind in the Waters : A Book to Celebrate the Consciousness of Whales and Dolphins. New York : Charles Scribner's Sons / San Francisco : Sierra Club Books, (1974). First Printing. Pp (12),13-240. Illustrated. 4to, brown cloth spine, blue paper-covered boards, blue lettering to spine. "Whales and dolphins have engaged human imagination from the beginning of recorded history. And now, perhaps more fantastically than has ever been imagined before, it appears that whales and dolphins possess a full intelligence, different from ours yet no less complex. It appears that these creatures, celebrated in fable and myth, are aware, can think, have consciousness. Mind in the Waters is a collection that outlines the capabilities and consciousness of whales and dolphins. Drawing on myythology as well as the most advanceed scientific findings, on poetry as wel as as natural history, on statistics as well as photographs, it is a basic compendium of information about whales and dolphins and a pictunre of the new understandings that seem to lie just beyond our present knowledge. It is also a call to action. Today, a whale is being killed every fourteen minutes. Thirty-six thousand whales are killed every year. The reasons for stopping this slaughter are humanitarian, biological, ecological and now the extraordinary fact that the creatures being destroyed are in all likelihood creatures with consciousness. Richly designed, made out of passion and urgency, Mind in the Waters is a book of revolutionary force. It asks its readers to reconsider both themselves and the life in the waters around them, and to examine what may be a c common thread of consciousness." (from the dj). Parts : 1. Myths and Beginnings; 2. Brains and Consciousness; 3. Living in the Sea; 4. Discovery and Response, 5. Let Us Act. Includes "The Trapped Whale" by Farley Mowat (pp.13-28) - excerpted from his book, A Whale for the Killing, with somenew ideas and one old story added. Very good in lightly rubbed dustjacket. 30.00
