Item Description: Garden City Publishing, New York, 1937. Hardcover. Rockwell Kent (illustrator). Second Trade Edition. 822pp. Blue cloth boards with gilt decorations to front cover and spine, gilt title to spine. This is Garden City's "De Luxe Edition," containing additional illustrations by Rockwell Kent not present in the first trade edition. Binding weak, soiling to page edges, else the book is very good. The dust jacket is good only; jacket is clipped, and shows significant chipping and wear, although the panels are largely intact. Scarce in jacket. Good in good dj. Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) was an American artist whose career as an illustrator was cemented by the very successful black and white drawings he produced to illuminate "Moby Dick." His illustrations for the work were first published by the Lakeside Press in 1930, nearly eighty years after the initial publication of "Moby Dick." A gorgeous and evocative treatment of the most successful whaling novel of all time, well worth spending some time with. Bookseller Inventory # 30348

Item Description: 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. Bookseller Inventory # 110708

Item Description: Harper and Brothers, 1851. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. This book is in good condition. There are two bookplates in the front a library stamp in the front and rear and a library mark to the spine. There is foxing throughout. There is some fading to the spine. The book comes with a custom made slipcase with the title printed in gilt on the spine. This is a first edition printed by Harper and Brothers in 1851. It is a true First Edition, First Printing with six pages of ads and a blank final leaf. While it is not known exactly how many copies of this book were made, it was not initially successful, and so the book did not have a large printing. The book became even more scarce after a fire at Harper and Brothers destroyed many of the unsold copies in 1853. A very hard to find copy of Melville's classic work.
