About this Item: Chicago: The Lakeside Press, 1930, 1930. 3 volumes, quarto. Recent black morocco, titles and pictorial blocks to the spines and front boards in silver copied from the original, black and white patterned paper, silver edges. Fine. Illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent. First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets, signed by the artist on the limitation page at the end of volume 3. It is considered to be one of the finest editions of Melville's masterpiece and one of the great American illustrated books of the 20th century. In 1926 Rockwell Kent (18821971), then just beginning to establish his fame as an artist, was approached by R. R. Donnelley and Sons to illustrate a new edition of Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast. Kent demurred, suggesting Moby Dick instead. Kent was given complete freedom to design and illustrate the three-volume set. The resulting work has been hailed as a masterpiece of 20th-century book illustration and credited with reviving public interest in a sublime but difficult novel. Seller Inventory # 110708
