Though now considered one of the defining works of American literature, Herman Melville’s Moby Dick was published in 1851 to poor reviews. The tale of Captain Ahab’s maniacal pursuit of the white whale Moby Dick — now cited as a powerful analogy for humanity’s search for meaning — would not find widespread acclaim until after Melville’s death. #MOBYDICK is a 1st Edition copy of Moby Dick, 1 of less than 3,000 1st Edition copies printed.

“… the supreme American novel, the source and the inspiration of everything that follows in the American literary canon.”

— The Guardian
