An annotated English translation of the works of Pallas
with an excellent discussion by the editors of the early literature on the Aleutian
Islands. Pallas, who wrote in 1780, depended upon the reports of explorers and hunters for
his information, and in addition to his own summary, he presents abstracts from these early
reports. In processing the lengthy geographical discussions were omitted either because
they were speculative or because the information has been covered in other sources.
Material included in Coxe (see 3: Coxe) was not excerpted from this source.
