Erdman's incredibly rich, daily, narrative log of collecting events and observations he and his assistant Hussein made in the Persian Gulf and Jeddah regions from 3 March to 16 August 1948. Erdman's collecting notes focus mostly on fish (approximately numbers U-48-1 to U-48-137 included). Erdman occasionally notes weather conditions, coordinates, and details about specimens. Erdman's notes also document collecting or observations of other specimens such as coral, shrimp, crab, mollusks, sea mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. Sketches of a variety of sea life and birds are included throughout the journal. Some specific localities include Al Khobar, Tarut Bay, Zaal, and El Azzizia. Erdman also includes observations and sketches of activities of local inhabitants and reference notes on fish.
