xxxv+177pp+illus. In 1844, Albert Koch, then an obscure but passionate paleontologist, began a remarkable journey by land and water that took him from Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts to New Orleans and Alabama in search of the gigantic sea serpent, or Zeuglodon. The full day-to-day record of his journey was published in excerpts in Germany in 1847. It is translated into English for the first time in this edition by Ernst A. Stadler, who also provides details of the author's life and other digs. Illustrated with numerous contemporary prints of fossils found by the author, later photographs and American scenes observed by Koch. Includes Index. Foreword by John Francis McDermott.
