Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick” Was Published In The U.S., This Day, 166-Years Ago; November 14, 1851.
I have to confess that I am NOT sure whether I have ever read ‘Moby Dick’ in its entirety! Yikes. I know I have tried, but I have this distinct impression that I gave up — albeit, this from when I was a teenager (and, to be honest, I do not that often NOT finish a book if I start reading it).
That said I have read Nathaniel Philbrick’s “Revenge of the Whale” — and recently also watched the movie. I am a BIG fan of Nathaniel Philbrick and have read 3 or 4 of his other books.
Interesting that ‘Moby Dick’ was first published in London — rather than New York.
