1960 FIRST EDITION PAULS BOOK ARCADE NAME INSIDE FRONT COVER

A BOOK OF DOLPHINS BY ANTONY ALPERS

The New Zealand author of this delightfully readable book is not a trained ologist and is not writing a definitive scientific treatise on the Dolphinidiae; rather, he has attempted throughout ""to write no paragraph that an intelligent young citizen of the world might not understand, and...to meet as far as possible the requirements of scientific statement"". Mr. Alpers divides his comprehensive work into three sections; the first includes tales about dolphins from the Greeks and Romans (retold here either directly or indirectly) plus some amazingly accurate extracts from ""Ancient Dlphiology"" by Pny, Aristotle, Oppian, and Plutarch; Part Two borrows from and refers to all of the significant modern studies which describe the place of the ""The Dolphin in Modern Biology""; and Part Three is a brief section about ""The Dolphin in New Zealand Waters"", including some ancient tales from the Polynesians, one legend, and two factual stories about experiences with dolphins in modern times. Among other noteworthy considerations here is a careful correction of the overstatements and misrepresentations that have been made of Dr. Lilly's recent findings concerning the intelligence of the dolphin. Especially suitable for young adults.
