    First Wiggins-illustrated edition, one of R. R. Donnelley's "Four American Books" together with Rockwell Kent's edition of Moby Dick.

In this project, which culminated in 1930, fine limited editions of Melville's Moby Dick, Thoreau's Walden, Dana's Two Years Before the Mast, and the Tales of Edgar Allan Poe were produced in bibliophilic forms both to exalt American literature and to promote the printing firm's bookmaking prowess" (Gutjahr and Benton, eds.
