Description: Allen, Joel Asaph. Preliminary List of Works and Papers Relating to the Mammalian Orders Cete and Sirenia. vi, pages 399-598 8vo, cloth; contents loose; bookplate of E. Lee Dorsett. Washington, 1882 E100-150 First Edition. Issued as Volume 6 of the Bulletin of the United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories. The use of the word preliminary in this title is apt. Allen is unaware of many titles in the literature and others which he reports on he has never examined. Still it remains the best source on early whale and whaling literature.
