Description
A collection of volumes of the diary of Alvin Seale and his wife Jessie recorded from 1901 to 1940. In the diary there are accounts of various parts of the world (e.g. Philippines, Hawaii, Hong Kong, South Seas, Galapagos, Latin America, U.S.A.). Most of the information recorded has to do directly with the place being visited, the biological activity in the area, and Seale's career as an Icthyologist. There are extensive notes on fish and bird specimins, many informative picutres, and a great deal of vivid narrations of his travels.
