"Greasy Luck - A Whaling Sketch Book," by Gordon Grant. Published in 1932 by William Farquhar Payson.

Beige cloth hardcover book has pictorial endpapers, 64 full-page illustrations including frontispiece, 127 pages, and measures 7.75 x 10.5 in.

Has vivid descriptions of actual whaling life to go with each illustration.

From the foreword by William McFee, noted writer of sea stories, "It appears to me that Mr. Grant has made a definitive and conclusive contribution to Whaliana. If the whales go the way of the buffalo of North America, we shall depend on this book for a lively conception of the ancient sport. Ships and wild animals, it has been remarked, have a hard and tragic ending. This book will preserve for posterity the spiritual as well as the material glories of the whaler's life."

Ex-library book has cracked hinges, some darkening to cover, and light fraying to corners and spine ends.
