KIRKUS REVIEW

Descended from sea-faring folk, Church was brought up on the New Bedford waterfront, and whaling was his boyhood passion. He turned his enthusiasm for photography to good account and set about assembling a pictorial record of a dying industry. And here is the only complete record -- 200 stunning photographs from a collection of 40,000, the work of a lifetime. It is to be a book of 128 pages -- 7fl x 10fl"". Limited edition of 100 copies, orders to be filled in order of receipt, signed $15.00.
