About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Omoo, White-Jacket by MELVILLE, Herman.

Description:

OMOO - A Narrative Of Adventures In The South Seas ; White-Jacket or the World in a Man-of-War 3/4 leather and marbled blue boards. Top edges gilt, smooth, the others deckled. Five raised bands, with gilt floral designs in four compartments. Gilt titles: WORKS OF MELVILLE followed by Title and EDITION DELUXE at Foot. Illus frontis with tissue guard; additional photogravure plates from drawings by Henry Austin, Burnham Shute and W.H. Overend. Preface by Arthur Stedman. Title Page in Black and Red With ILLUSTRATED STERLING EDITION at top. Copyright page states Elizabeth S. Melville, 1892. There are no other dates and no terminal ads. Dana Estes and Co. did publish editions of Omoo and White Jacket in 1892 (one year after Melville's death). This set may have been published a few years later; perhaps 1900 as in this year the 3/4 leather and marble board style was also used by the same publisher for works by Dickens, Scott and Thackeray. Both Volumes are in beautiful condition internally with no marks of any kind, tears or folded pages. Inner Binding is firm and volumes are square and tight. There is a small piece of the marble paper missing from the front board of Omoo exposing the leather underneath. The Front Board is attached but there is splitting along the outer hinge; rear board is fine. The Leather Spine of White Jacket is intact but has become unglued from its inner card; front board remains attached. A lovely and uncommon set. Bookseller Inventory #
