Moby Dick

By Melville, Herman




Melville's classic was first published in England as three volumes titled The Whale in October 1851. Slow sales of Melville's previously books convinced Publisher L. Richard Bentley to reduce the printing to only 500 copies, and of that, only 300 sold in the first 4 months. The remaining unbound sheets were bound in a cheaper casing in 1852, and in 1853 there were still enough remaining sheets to again bind into an even cheaper edition.

Melville changed the title to Moby Dick a month later, November 1851, when the American Version was published in one volume by Harper & Brothers in NY. Of the 2,951 copies printed, 125 were review copies. About 1,500 sold in 11 days, but then sales slowed to less than 300 the next year. After two years copies of the first edition were still available, and almost 300 were destroyed in the 1853 fire of Harper's warehouse. Most of the first editions have orange end-papers, although there are 2 known volumes with rare white-endpapers.

Because of Nineteenth century printing practices, and the time lapse between when the first-editions were published and Melville became collectable, oxidized paper, bumped and chipped spines, and brittle wrappers are all common for even the most expensive and collectable of these books, which can sell from $35,000 to $100,000. Also expect heavy wear and maybe even minor repair. Another collectable edition is the 1930 first edition illustrated by Rockwell Kent, a three volume set published by the Lakeside Press with acetate dust jackets in an aluminum slipcase. These range in value from $9,000 to $11,000.

A total of 3,215 copies of Moby-Dick were sold during Melville's life (he died in 1891). Today, Moby-Dick is considered one of the greatest American novels.

Moby Dick; Or, The Whale.

Melville, Herman

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1851. First edition, first issue binding, with the circular Harper's device of Melville's masterpiece. Octavo, original purple-brown cloth (BAL's A grain), covers stamped in blind with the publisher's circular device at the center within a heavy blind rule frame, original orange-coated endpapers. A near fine condition with some of the usual light foxing and light shelfwear to the spine tips. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A completely unrestored example of this cornerstone. A superior example. Initially panned by critics and readers when published in 1851, "in the 20th century Moby Dick would be rediscovered and acknowledged as possibly the greatest of all American novels" (Chronology of American Literature). Arguably the greatest single work in American literature, Moby-Dick was initially "a complete practical failure, misunderstood by the critics and ignored by the public. Nevertheless, Melville's permanent fame must always rest on the great prose epic of Moby-Dick, a book that has no equal in American literature for variety and splendor of style and for depth of feeling" (DAB).

Moby-Dick; or, The Whale

MELVILLE, HERMAN

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1851. First American Edition; preceded slightly by the English edition, although this edition has numerous additions to that text. Publisher’s green cloth; stamped in gilt and in blind; first binding, although this cataloguer has never seen either of the later two bindings in the wild. Some fading and wear; foxed (as seems inevitable); faded contemporary owner’s inscription on the front free endpaper; bookplate of author and collector Carolyn Wells. The final 50 or so leaves are marginally waterstained at the lower corners, far from any text; bottom corners of the three advertising leaves slightly chipped, likewise not near any printing. Overall, a good copy of a book often found repaired, rebacked, restored or otherwise suffering from previous owners’ good or bad intentions. In a custom quarter-morocco clamshell box (corners frayed).

Melville, Herman

Harper & Brothers, 1851 First American Edition; first binding; with the original cloth bound in blue from the publisher. In the Melville bibliography, this would be the blue "A" cloth, the true first American edition and most desirable copy for a collector. Many copies of this first edition were burned in a fire, and the remaining copies tend to be re-bound. This rare first edition is one of the surviving copies still in the original cloth, untouched. The book has some foxing mainly effecting the first few pages and the endpapers. The boards have some wear to the corners and edges. The spine ends have some light fraying. Otherwise, the book is quite lovely. Besides the previous owner's early signature, the book is clean. There is no writing, marks or bookplates in the book. The binding is tight, and the book is one of the nicer copies that you will find on the market with the original first printing binding. Overall, a collectable copy of this first edition housed in custom clamshell for preservation. We buy Melville First Editions.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

Edward Newton copy of the first American edition. Moby-Dick is "a book that has no equal in American literature for variety and splendor of style and for depth of feeling" (DAB). The American edition followed the English by a month and contains some thirty-five passages and an epilogue which were excluded in the English edition. A. Edward Newton, a prolific collector and author, helped popularize Melville's work in the 20th century in his 1928 work The Book-Collecting Game, and he included the novel in his list of "One Hundred Good Novels," calling it "one of the finest pieces of literature in the English language." Along with the rare first English edition (The Whale), Newton's 1941 Parke-Bernet sale featured two copies of Moby-Dick: one in red cloth, and the present copy in blue cloth with the rare grey and yellow marbled endpapers. With a manuscript note in pencil on the verso of the front free endpaper by the Yale Sterling Professor of Literature and noted bibliophile Chauncey Brewster Tinker, "These endpapers are similar to those in my copy and I believe them correct.

Melville, Herman

First American Edition. A book with well detailed literary significance. Copies always available, but seldom seen with any sort of additional historical significance. Jim Morrison certainly qualifies as a significant figure, influencing countless artists and fans across the globe to this day. A poetic spirit that made an important mark on Rock n' Roll, he loved reading and often spoke of its power. This copy was with him during his last days in Paris (removed from his flat after his untimely death and kept with his long time girlfriend's family). One can certainly deduce that he handled this copy a fair amount of time and definitely treasured it as a key book in literary history.**** Original publisher's brown cloth, first issue binding complete with 6 pp publisher's ads at rear. Re-backed with original spine laid down, an extra gathering inserted by the original binder, some wear here and there particularly to spine ends, scattered light foxing but overall a very sound, tight copy and remarkably clean inside. Owner signature at front endpaper dated 1890.**** Prettier copies are out there, and even though I live in LA or maybe because I live in LA, I'll take the girl with depth of soul over the ubiquitous superficially attractive ones.*** Why do we pursue such an odd course of action as book collecting? To be the temporary safe keepers of history and something meaningful to our trifling existence. As a friend and all around good guy once told me; it's about the vibrations of history. When you hold this book, you may find it difficult to keep your hands steady. If you're in the market for Moby Dick or generally a flat out cool book, why not pick up a copy owned by someone that had a hell of an influence on millions? ******For even better pricing, visit our website at http://annirocbooks.wixsite.com/anniroc**********

MELVILLE, Herman.

New York: Harper & Brothers,, 1851. or, The Whale. Octavo. Original purple-brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt with decorative band in gilt at head and tail, covers blocked in blind with thick single-line border and central publisher's life-buoy device, brown-orange coated endpapers. Housed in a red morocco slipcase and chemise. Complete with six pages of publisher's advertisements at rear. Joints and inner hinges very sensitively repaired and strengthened; boards somewhat scuffed and marked; first gathering discreetly resewn; some foxing as usual, short paper repair to fore edge of dedication leaf, pp. 432-3 browned at top of gutter from inlaid piece of paper. Overall a good, stable copy in the highly uncommon original cloth, the gilt titles still bright. First US edition, first issue binding (BAL's "A" state), a superb association copy of the American masterpiece in its complete form; Charles Warren Stoddard's copy, inscribed by him on the front free endpaper, "Charles Warren Stoddard Waihee Maui H. May 84". The tightly-knit literary and geographical connections between Melville, Stoddard, and the book's subject matter itself are all manifested here, making it arguably the best association copy to appear on the market in recent decades. Charmed by the escapist portrait of the South Sea Islands painted by Melville and a few of his contemporaries, and seeking to improve his health, the American writer Charles Warren Stoddard (1843-1909) visited Hawaii and Tahiti for the first time in 1864, aged twenty-one, and made four further extended trips during his lifetime. "In several ways, this trip to Hawaii was a turning point, destined, as Stoddard put it, 'to influence the whole current of my life'" (Austen, pp. 26-7). His subsequent letters, verse, and travelogues are infused with his enthusiasm for the South Seas culture, and his South-Sea Idylls (Boston: James R. Osgood and Co., 1873) references Melville several times: "A moist cloud, far up the mountain, hung above a serene and sacred haunt, and under its shelter was hidden a deep valley, whose secret has been carried to the ends of the earth; for Herman Melville has plucked out the heart of its mystery, and beautiful and barbarous Typee lies naked and forsaken" (p. 314). Stoddard was particularly enamoured of the sexual freedoms which he associated with the region, and which allowed him to live an openly homosexual lifestyle. From his home city of San Francisco in late 1866 "Stoddard sent [Melville] his newly published Poems along with news that in Hawaii he had found no traces of Melville. A homosexual who had written even more fervently to Whitman, Stoddard had been excited by Typee, finding Kory-Kory so stimulating that he wrote a story celebrating the sort of male friendships to which Melville had more than once alluded. From the poems Stoddard sent, Melville may have sensed no homosexual undercurrent, and the extant draft of his reply in January 1867 is noncommittal" (Parker, vol. 2, p. 28). Melville's response reads: "Dear Sir: I have read with much pleasure the printed Verses you sent me, and, among others, was quite struck with the little effusion entitled 'Cherries & Grapes'. I do not wonder that you found no traces of me at the Hawaiian Islands. Yours Very Truly, H. Melville" (Horth, p. 399). Stoddard travelled to Honolulu again in March 1884 but, restless and depressed by a failing romance, he sailed for Waihee, Maui in early May, where he stayed until July. Visiting family on the island - his now-ailing sister had married a rich Maui planter's son - did not shake the writer from his bleak mood, and he spent his time idly, eschewing travel to stay mostly indoors "where he could play the piano, drink some claret, borrow a few books, and chat with 'Sister' if she were well enough to sit up … He did try to do a little writing while he was on Maui … [but] other than that, almost nothing" (Austen, p. 102). It was in this melancholic state that Stoddard inscribed the present copy of Moby-Dick, one of the works that had so attracted him to South Seas life to begin with, by an author who - for him - was inextricably linked to Hawaii. From very early on Stoddard had been something of an evangelist for Melville's writings. Meeting Robert Louis Stevenson in San Francisco in 1879, he presented him with copies of Typee and Omoo and encouraged him to make his own South Seas journey, which Stevenson finally undertook in 1888, spending the last few years of his life in Samoa, where he died in 1894. In 1909, the year of Stoddard's death, Stevenson remarked in a magazine article that "there are but two writers who have touched the South Seas with any genius, both Americans: Melville and Charles Warren Stoddard" (Brawley & Dixon, p. 49). Moby-Dick was originally issued in London earlier the same year, set from the New York sheets and titled The Whale. The US edition was the first to appear under the familiar title, and contains some thirty-five passages and the epilogue omitted from the English edition. It was a "complete practical failure, misunderstood by the critics and ignored by the public; and in 1853 the Harpers' fire destroyed the plates of all his books and most of the copies remaining in stock" (DAB, vol. 12, p. 523) - it is estimated that only about sixty copies survived. The present copy is in the first binding, BAL's "A" state in purple-brown, with brown-orange endpapers and the publisher's device stamped centrally on the sides. Copies in first bindings also appear in black, blue, grey, green, red, and slate (no priority stated, as Sadleir notes on p. 221).

Original pebble-grained red cloth with gilt spine lettering and blind-embossed rules and front board publisher's device. xxiii, 635pp, (6pp ads). Good plus. Internally a sound "Very good," as it's internally tight and unrestored, showing only mild sporadic age toning and occasional light foxing; binding is sound and decent, with exposed tips; somewhat rough spine has had 1" X 1" excision archivally and discretely restored and chipped spine head and tail archivally rebuilt (see images); pencilled 1852 ownership signature on inner flyleaf. A tight, presentable and quite handleable first U.S. edition, first issue, of this giant of 19th century literature.

Melville's permanent fame must always rest on the great prose epic of Moby Dick, a book that has no equal in American literature for variety and splendor of style and for depth of feeling" (Dictionary of American Biography).
