Both volumes have some faint evidence of liquid splash on boards, but still present well and are in excellent condition internally. Some pages unopened in text volume. During the summer of 1899, the party cruised the waters off southeastern and southern Alaska and the eastern Aleutians, making numerous stops for scientific investigation and collecting. The starfishes collected during the expedition were all sent to Verrill, a highly accomplished invertebrate zoologist.
