New Acquisition to the Melville Museum

This lovely and somewhat rare edition of Moby-Dick was published by Garden City Press in 1937. The cover features a gold foil-embossed whale tail; a golden harpoon coiled in rope graces the spine. The interior is copiously illustrated by the inimitable Rockwell Kent. We were fortunate to salvage this edition from Powell's Book on Burnside for only $35; it would likely fetch closer to $37.50 at auction.
