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.
