Friday Giveaway: Moby Dick (contest closed)





After last week's big giveaway, I thought I would keep it simple today. I'm giving away just one book, but it's a beauty - a 1977 Easton Press leatherbound collector's edition of Herman Melville's "Moby Dick." From the description:

This gift-quality decorator edition of Melville's classic is bound in dark blue leather boards, with allover gilt decoration and gilt lettering. The cover has a stylized gilt illustration of a whale. All page edges are gilt; a ribbon bookmark is bound into the book. Endpapers are watered silk. Color and black-and-white illustrations by Boardman Robinson appear throughout. Introduction by Clifford Fadiman. 

Contest now closed, winner will be announced shortly.

I love this. I'm a big fan of the Rockwell Kent edition, with his gorgeous graphic prints, but those paintings look stunning.

I’ll give it a whirl. Thanks, meanwhile, for shipping the per diem Coleridge volume so quickly, and packaging it so well.

In today's NY Times, Joe Queenan said he's been reading M Dick for 20 years, and is up to page 100. I'm thinking I could beat that.

People say I'm strange because I actually love the book. In fact I just ordered a Moby Dick case for my new phone. :-) A copy like this one would be wonderful.
