"Call me Ismael" begins "Moby Dick", one of the most famous novels in world literature. Re-narrated and illustrated here, with a glossary of the most important technical terms and an image legend of the whaling ship. The novel is based on personal experience: Herman Melville sailed for several years on the South Pacific and the Atlantic.
Patrick Benson, who edits the book, includes not only Melville’s narrative, but a further discussion of the book, the life of Melville, a glossary of nautical and whaling terms, diagrams of a whaler, a short sketch on the whaling industry, etc. It’s more than just a book. It goes into the details beyond Melville’s narrative and bring real life into factitious characters.
The hard conver book is in good condition.
