Decorative 1937 leather MOBY DICK Melville ROCKWELL KENT ….

Gorgeous 1937 three-quarter leather binding of the classic edition of Moby Dick, illustrated by Rockwell Kent, in very good condition. An unquestioned masterpiece of modern book illustration…..

MOBY DICK, or, THE WHALE, Herman Melville, illustrated by Rockwell Kent, Garden City Publishing, 1937.  Deluxe edition, three quarters leather over marbled paper covered boards. Five raised bands on spine.  5.5 x 8 inches. Looks like a large label, probably an owner’s bookplate, was removed from the front pastedown, taking with it a large rectangle of the surfaced of the marbled paper on the pastedown.  This is the single major flaw of this book.    Interior is clean and bright.  Tight binding. Condition:  very good…..
