About the Book

Description:

An early printing by Harper Brothers, the "Revised Edition, with a Sequel". With a chart of the Marquesas Islands as frontispiece. 8vo, publisher’s original cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and elaborately decorated in blind on the spine and covers. xiv, 307, 8 ads. An especially handsome and clean and bright copy. Melville's first book, and the most popular during his lifetime. It is a classic in the literature of travel and adventure and is partly based on Melville's experiences as a captive on the island Nuku Hiva in the South Pacific Marquesas Islands, in 1842. The title is derived from the name of a valley there called Tai Pi Vai. It was Melville's most popular work during his lifetime, but made him notorious as the "man who lived among the cannibals." For 19th century readers, his career seemed to decline afterward, but during the 20th century it was seen as the beginning of a career that peaked with Moby-Dick. Bookseller Inventory #
