One of the earliest manuscripts in the Society's collections is the journal of a whaling voyage from London to Spitzbergen in 1613, attributed to Robert Fotherby. The journal describes geography, wildlife, weather, and whaling methods, and is illustrated with watercolors such as this view of a sea-morse (walrus).
