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.
