Three Books


Moby-Dick by Herman Melville. First edition trade paperback by The University of California Press, based on the 1979 Arion Press edition. Cover illustration by Barry Moser. I have too many copies of Moby-Dick.IMG_0158

Call Me Ishmael by Charles Olson. 1971 trade paperback by City Lights Books. No designer credited. Call Me Ishmael is a perfect book.IMG_0160

Selected Tales and Poems of Herman Melville (Richard Chase, editor).  1950 Rinehart Editions trade paperback by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. I’m a big fan of these midcentury Rinehart Editions paperbacks—they have an odd signature look to them.
