87pp, illustrations. In his diary George Laing recounts the tribulations of the Hull whaling fleet, notably the tragedy of 'Baffin Fair' which brought to an end the heyday of the Hull whaling enterprise in the Arctic. His diary is transcribed by his great-granddaughter and together with his drawings is a unique record of our maritime history.
