(Literary) The Voyage of the Pequod from the Book Moby Dick by Herman Melville
Everett Henry was an artist, teacher (School of Fine and Applied Art) and muralist who was prolific and well known as a commercial artist during the 1930's and 40's. His ability as a muralist translated wonderfully into a series of literary maps he made starting in 1953, up to the time of his death in 1961. As a painter he has a great facility with conveying light and working off of strong contrasts, making fluid and interesting compositions. This is one of his early literary works for Melville's great book "Moby Dick".
This map spans from the South Pacific to the Atlantic showing the progression of the story, with an inset for "The Pequod sails from Nantucket, Christmas Day". Other insets show key moments in the story, while a swath of action sweeps across the Sea illustrating noted developments. A very rare map and our first time to offer it.
Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 17 x 24.25 (inches)
