"Moby Dick" Herman Melville [c.1965] 24k gold decorated leatherette book w- insert
Octavo in faux leather decorated front board and spine, cloth head and tail band in binding along with a ribbon place mark, deckled outer edge, 502 pages, unadorned end papers.
This is a "very good -" vintage hardcover. The spine is strong and the board hinges quiet crisp and tight. The ribbon seems untouched. There are no loose, folded or torn pages. The board corners are lightly bumped, and the spine head and heel are chipped. Text block upper edge is mildly dusted with one thin dent and the bottom edge has a couple of light stray marks - one red and one blue
(see accompanying images). 24k gilt decorations on front board and spine are crisp, not rubbed.
Overall, a very pleasing vintage volume!
