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

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.

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).

New York: Harper & Brothers,, 1851. Original first-issue binding Octavo. Original grey cloth, spine lettered in gilt with decorative band in gilt at head and foot, covers blocked in blind with central publisher's life-buoy device, orange endpapers. Housed in a blue quarter morocco box, spine lettered in gilt, marbled sides. 20th-century bookplate of Miriam Dyer-Bennet to the front pastedown. Spine sunned and lightly soiled, light wear around extremities with minor repairs at spine ends, recoloured patch of abrasion to front endpaper, foxed, creasing to pages around gutter and fore edge. A very good copy. First US edition, in the first issue binding (BAL's "A" state). 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). The present copy is in the first binding, BAL's "A" state in grey, with orange endpapers and the publisher's device stamped centrally on the sides. Copies in first issue bindings appear in purple, black, blue, grey, green, red, and slate (no priority stated, as Sadleir notes on p. 221).

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1851. Hardcover. Small 8vo. 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. One of only 3000 U.S. copies, the American edition -- preceded by the 2-volume English version one month prior -- met with little fanfare, and supposedly many unsold copies were destroyed in an 1854 warehouse fire. Original terra cotta endpapers. Despite wear this is a respectable copy, appropriately priced. BAL 13664.

Tiny light stains on a couple of the front endpapers, nominal rubbing at the spine ends, still fine in fine aluminum slipcase. Lacking the original acetate dustwrappers, this copy came to us with early glassine dustwrappers. Limited to 1000 sets. Illustrated by Kent with 280 magnificent woodcuts, this is considered to be his masterpiece and is a landmark of 20th Century book illustration. The book gained its nickname, "Fish in a Can", for its unusual aluminum slipcase (and yes, we know a whale isn't a fish).

[Brattleboro, VT]: Limited Editions Club, 1943. Hardcover. The leather is still supple with solid coloring. The spines are faded with some wear to the tips, and there's slight edgewear but much less than normally encountered. Very Good, lacking the slipcase. A better example than most copies offered for sale. Boardman Robinson. Two quarto volumes (7-1/2" x 10") bound in full dark sheepskin with gilt lettering on the spines. Copy #818 of 1000 with color and black-and-white plates after paintings by Boardman Robinson and SIGNED by the artist on the colophon page. One of the most difficult books of the press to obtain in decent condition because of the tendency of the leather to dry. When copies are seen, usually the binding is so dry it is crumbling. The limitation of 1000 copies is not stated, nor is the typical limitation of 1500 copies stated, but a letter from the publisher, George Macy, to a subscriber in another copy we handled explained the limitation (not included here).
