Herman Melville Nautical Engraving Set

Almost all of Herman Melville's novels draw from his experiences at sea. Even as his writing evolved to become emblematic of 19th-century American literature's dark, psychological style, Melville wove the experiences of his personal travels into his works and helped develop the young country's thirst for tales of adventure and independence. This elegant, neutral-toned set of Melville books features custom-printed jackets with an antique engraving of sailors onboard a ship's deck.

The books in this set are published by Everyman’s Library and Library of America. Each hardcover volume from Everyman's Library is bound in cloth and features a silk reading ribbon, acid-free and natural cream-colored paper, and European-style half-round spines.

Please note, our jackets are designed to fit only the specific authorized editions of the books named on the jackets and listed on the “Includes” tab.
