Moby Dick or The Whale (3 Volumes)
The Lakeside Press 1930 - First edition thus, limited to 1,000 copies. Three volumes in publisher's acetate jackets, lacking the aluminum slipcase. Presentation copy signed by Rockwell Kent on the front free end paper of Volume I, "Inscribed with affectionate friendship to Putzie - Rockwell Kent, 1950." Volumes II and III bear Rockwell Kent-illustrated bookplates of Marie Luise Hinrichs. Very Good+. Narrow strips of sunning to spine cloth at ends, light rubbing to cloth at extremities and light abrasions to black topstains. Pages toned and with offsetting from illustrations. Acetate wrappers are wrinkled and shrunken with age, as is typical, and show a bit of chipping and edge wear, with some separation starting between the acetate and a paper flap on both volumes II and III; acetate on volume II with light staining. A stunning presentation copy, inscribed by Kent, and with bookplates designed by him as well. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
