(And Yet Another) Moby-Dick (Book Acquired, 4.18.2014)

So I bought yet another copy of Moby-Dick, despite the many several editions already in our home.

I’d looked for an edition of the Barry Moser illustrated M-D for years—casually, in used book shops—but after a few (ahem) glasses of chardonnay, I bought one for next to nothing on eBay.

Moser’s etchings are superb, of course, and they most often illustrate the technical, scientific, or historical aspects of the novel. Great stuff.

    If you’ve got this one, and the Rockwell Kent edition, you’re golden. Two very different approaches; both got it way right in their own right way.

    At $6700.00 – that’s no bargain bin price, for sure.

    Barry Moser is my favorite illustrator. I want a copy, too!
