MARDI: AND A VOYAGE THITHER.
London: Richard Bentley, 1849. - Three volumes. Octavo. Turn of the century three-quarter olive calf and marbled boards, spines gilt extra, gilt labels, by Larkins. Extremities a bit rubbed, but a handsome, very good set, with the half-titles in the 2nd and 3rd volumes (none called for in the first). First edition, preceding the U.S. edition. One of one thousand sets printed. Apart from THE WHALE, Melville's only other three volume novel, and while a difficult set indeed in original cloth, even sets in bindings such as that in hand are uncommon. SADLEIR (EXCURSIONS), p.225. BAL 13657.
