Moby Dick, by Herman Melville and illustrated by Rockwell Kent. A Modern Library Giant edition with dust wrapper. The copyright page acknowledges the original publication date – 1930 – but it does not state the date of this specific edition. (In a promotional leaflet published by Modern Library, in this author’s collection, they provide a February 3rd, 1944 publication date for this edition.)

Buff cloth with green title block and gilt lettering. The dust wrapper is intact. No fading, though there are some tears. (Dust jacket covered with acetate protective sheet.)

Due to the popularity of the Kent illustrated deluxe and trade editions (1930), additional editions have been published in a variety of formats, throughout the years and throughout the globe.
