New York: J. & J. Harper, 1832. 1832 Moby Dick Inspiration Morrell Narrative of Four Voyages Shipwrecks Melville Benjamin Morrell was a 19th-century American sailor who is primarily remembered for his book 'A Narrative of Four Voyages'. This book described his sea adventures, his discoveries, and shipwrecks; however, much to his dismay, many of the reports in his book were proven false and he was marked as a fraud.And while much of his work is disputed, one such thing that is not is that Herman Melville is thought to have based themes of his book 'Moby Dick'. As a child, Melville saw Morrell on one of his voyage tours and was fascinated by the stories.Item number: #11427Price: $950MORRELL, BenjaminA Narrative of four voyages to the South Sea, North and South Pacific Ocean, Chinese Sea, Ethiopic and Southern Atlantic Ocean, Indian and Antarctic Ocean, from ... 1822 to 1831. ...
