About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for MOBY DICK, or The Whale by [Kent, Rockwell, Illus.] Melville Herman.

Description:

The First trade edition of this illustrated classic. With beautiful reproductions of Rockwell Kent's artwork which originally appeared in the scarce Lakeside Press Limited Edition. 8vo, full black cloth lettered and pictorially decorated in silver after designs by Kent on both the upper cover and spine. xxxi, 822, + epilogue pp. A very attractive copy, the black cloth and silver embellishments are very bright and unfaded, the text-block is clean and fresh. A BRIGHT AND ATTRACTIVE COPY OF THE FIRST TRADE EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC WORK, ILLUSTRATED BY ONE OF AMERICA'S MOST FAMOUS ARTISTS, Herman Melville’s classic nineteenth century whaling story and Rockwell Kent’s definitively twentieth century artistic style might strike one at first as an odd juxtaposition. The end-product speaks for itself however and this truly handsome book has become a classic in it own right. Fantastically rendered, it ranks among the finest of illustrated novels.
