Moby Dick

Today I received my Folio society copy of Moby Dick.

It is a numbered limited edition ( my birth-year ), leather - bound, illustrated by Rockwell Kent, in a solander box with as a separate companion book : the famous commentary on Moby by Harold Beaver.

This book is quite simply a dream.

Probably the most beautiful, best smelling  ( and most expensive ) book I ever bought.
