AJS: Modern whaling began around 1864, when steam driven vessels carryingûthe shell harpoon invented by Svend Foyn replaced open boats andûhand-thrown spears. Other countries - Germany in the 1930s and the SovietûUnion and Japan in recent times - are also leading protagonists.ûThis work, translated from the Norwegian by R.I. Christophersen, is a muchûshortened version of a work originally published in Norwegian in threeûvolumes 1967-1970. A standard work now long out-of-print.
