Item Description: Chicago: The Lakeside Press, 1930, 1930. 3 volumes, large quarto. Original black cloth, bevelled boards, titles and vignettes to spines in silver, abstract design and volume numbers within simple frame to front boards in silver, top edges black, others uncut. Housed in the original aluminium slipcase. Very light marking to covers, spines very slightly faded. Slight offsets from illustrations, as usual. Slight scuffing to slipcase. An excellent copy. Wood-engravings throughout by Rockwell Kent. First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets. With a pencilled presentation inscription by Rockwell Kent to the front free endpaper of volume 1: 'To Jerry M. Stepanek by Rockwell Kent'. This is 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.

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.
