1851 HUGE Illustrated London News Moby Dick 1st Melville 1851 Insurrection
A rare mid-19th-century issue of 'The Illustrated London News' bound in a beautiful, leather binding.
This series of issues from 1851 to 1852 covers a wide variety of important topics, however, none are as noteworthy as the inclusion of one of the earliest reviews of the famed Herman Melville novel 'Moby Dick', which had only been released two weeks prior to this issue of 'Illustrated London News'. Other interesting topics and illustrations include:
o The lottery drawing wheels
o Sewing machine mechanics
o Pressure engines, drills
o Telescope, stereoscope improvements
· Sea voyages, shipwrecks, attacks by whales
