Moby Dick; Or, The Whale.
Harper & Brothers, New York 1851 - First edition. Octavo, original publisher's brown cloth. A near fine condition with some of the usual light foxing and light shelfwear to the spine tips. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A completely unrestored example to this cornerstone. A superior example. Initially panned by critics and readers when published in 1851, "in the 20th century Moby Dick would be rediscovered and acknowledged as possibly the greatest of all American novels" (Chronology of American Literature). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB]
