Moby Dick or The Whale. Illustrated by Rockwell Kent. De Luxe Edition.
New York: Garden City Publishing Co, Inc, 1937 - Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles and stylised harpoon design to spine gilt, stylised water and whale tail design to front board gilt, top edge blue. With the dust jacket. Spine ends lightly bumped and sunned, boards very gently bowed. An excellent copy in a bright jacket with gently nicked and rubbed extremities and mild creasing along the lightly sunned spine panel. Illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent. First edition thus. Originally published in 1930 by the Lakeside Press of Chicago in a three-volume limited edition, the Random House trade edition of Rockwell Kent's Moby Dick proved immensely popular and has been credited with contributing to the rediscovery of the novel and its position as a modern classic. This "de luxe edition" was published seven years later using the plates from the Random House edition along with a new case of blue blocked in gold (rather than black blocked in silver) and a new full colour dust jacket by Kent.
