Moby Dick or The Whale. Illustrated by Rockwell Kent.
A masterpiece of 20th-century book illustration. An incredibly cool item for any collection.
First Rockwell Kent trade edition - Kent's imagining of Melville's classic, first published the same year by the Lakeside Press of Chicago in a three-volume limited edition, is as a tour-de-force. Full to the brim with Rockwell Kent's stylish black and white Art Deco images.
First Rockwell Kent trade edition, first impression. Interbally very fresh - a fine example; a near fine fine example of the rare dustjacket with a few chips a one minor tear. Rare.
