More About Moby Dick by Herman Melville; Raymond Bishop
 
 
 
Overview
Acclaimed by D. H. Lawrence as "the greatest book of the sea ever written," Moby Dick looms large in America's literary consciousness -- and the style and philosophical content of Melville's 1851 epic was generations ahead of its time. Today the chronicle of a vengeful captain's obsessive, self-destructive search for a white whale ranks among the great American novels, and this volume does full justice to its preeminence. Twenty-five glorious woodcut illustrations from the 1930 Albert and Charles Boni version complement the newly reset edition, which also features an abundance of decorative elements.
Much of Moby Dick was inspired by the 1821 work Narratives of the Wreck of the Whale-Ship Essex, which in turn inspired the 2015 movie In the Heart of the Sea, directed by Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth.
