Product Synopsis

This trade edition of "Moby-Dick" is a reduced version of the Arion Press "Moby-Dick", which was published in 1979 in a limited edition of 250 copies and has been hailed as a modern masterpiece of bookmaking. It was hand set under the supervision of one of America's finest book designers and printers. The initial letters that begin each chapter were designed especially for this book and christened "Leviathan". The illustrations, of places, creatures, objects or tools, and processes connected with nineteenth-century whaling, are original boxwood engravings by Massachusetts artist Barry Moser. The text of "Moby-Dick" used in this edition is based on that used in the critical edition of Melville's works published by the Northwestern University Press and the Newberry Library. This reduced version is smaller in size than the Arion edition and the California deluxe edition, but it includes all of the original pages and illustrations. It is printed in black only throughout, and it is not slipcased.

I was on that boat until the bitter end hunting down that white whale for the treasured gold doubloon fixed to that mast. My eyes were locked and there was no turning back until that last full-stop. Loved it. - Tomi.
