Item Description: Random House, New York, 1930. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Kent, Rockwell (illustrator). 1st Edition. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. 823 p. First trade edition of Moby Dick illustrated by Rockwell Kent; the Lakeside Press published a limited edition in three volumes with 280 illustrations; this trade edition is in a smaller format and uses 272 of the illustrations. Rockwell Kent was already well-known and his appeal has continued to grow throughout the 20th century; his work is widely collected today. Interestingly, while Melville wrote Moby Dick in 1851, it was almost neglected until Kent elected to illustrate the story; his illustrated version had tremendous success and revived the novel for the 20th century. ***DESCRIPTION: Black cloth boards with silver letting on front and spine, both the front and spine also display Kent's own design of a whale, with the head on the front and the tail on the spine, cream endpapers, prior owner bookplate laid in (it was tipped onto the front pastedown, one can just see very light browning from the adhesive) for Francis White, bookplate designed by John McGrath (1880s to 1940s), vintage bookseller's ticket on the rear pastedown from Wayfarer's Bookshop, Washington D.C; there is also a vintage price in pencil at the top of the rear free endpaper of $3.50. Volume is replete with Kent's black-and-white pen/brush and ink drawings which made him justly so famous. The dust jacket mirrors the design on the front panel and on the spine, in black with cobalt blue highlights, and while it displays Kent's name on both front and spine, it does not display Melville's. 12 mo size (approximately 7" tall), 822 pages plus a one-page Epilogue. ***CONDITION: Volume is overall fine, the silver gilt on the front and spine bright and unrubbed, with a square, strong text block and solid hinges, straight corners without rubbing, other than the bookplate mentioned above it is free of prior owner markings; professional restoration was done to repair a very small tear to the binding at the front joint near the head of the spine; slight dustiness to the text block edges, else fine. The unclipped (although also unpriced) dust jacket is good only, with overall edgewear, several small chips, the front panel has a small triangular spot where the top layer of paper rubbed away, just affecting the top of the letter "y" in "Moby", the back panel has several creases; there is also some sunning to the spine - the jacket is entirely present and the illustration on the front is bright, but it's overall a bit rough. ***CITATION: Rockwellkentiana, pg. 62. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. Bookseller Inventory # 16111301

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 author 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
