Moby Dick

New York: The Lakeside Press, 1930.

First edition thus, limited to 1,000 copies. Three volumes in publisher's black cloth binding with silver stamping, lacking the acetate jackets and aluminum slipcase. Very Good. Cloth rubbed, faded and lightly stained at spine with wear at the spine ends. Small bit of fraying to bottom edge of bottom board of Volume I. Small tidemark to bottom gutter of Volume III at early and end pages. A crowning achievement of Machine Age book design, whose publication helped to propel Moby Dick out from semi-obscurity into its current fame as perhaps the quintessential American novel.
