Of the many and varied scientific mysteries for which Cdr. R. T. Gould is known, the one subject for which he is, even today, most closely associated is the question of the existence of sea serpents. Gould's first paper on the subject was given to the Sette of Odd Volumes on 25 March 1925, in which he cites twelve cases of positive and well-documented sightings. Having thus prepared the ground for further research, and ‘staked his claim’ to the subject, he began planning a larger account in early 1929 and was ready to embark on writing immediately after the typescript for Enigmas was finished that summer. This chapter presents a short summary of the book's contents and Gould's conclusions, along with a few comments by others, better placed to judge the quality of Gould's work on the subject.
