Yes, I will go to sea; cut my kind uncles and aunts, and sympathizing patrons, and leave no heavy hearts but those in my own home, and take none ...Show synopsisYes, I will go to sea; cut my kind uncles and aunts, and sympathizing patrons, and leave no heavy hearts but those in my own home, and take none along but the one which aches in my bosom. Cold, bitter cold as December, and bleak as its blasts, seemed the world then to me; there is no misanthrope like a boy disappointed; and such was I, with the warmth of me flogged out by adversity. But these thoughts are bitter enough even now, for they have not yet gone quite away; and they must be uncongenial enough to the reader; so no more of that, and let me go on with my story.Hide synopsis

Description:Near Fine. Complete in two octavo volumes, the rare first issue...Near Fine. Complete in two octavo volumes, the rare first issue of Melville's fourth novel, one of only 335 two-volume sets from the first printing of 750 copies. viii, 316; viii, 314pp. Original publisher's dark blue cloth, spines ruled in blind and lettered in gilt, covers paneled and stamped with floral design in blind, yellow-coated end papers (BAL state B, "sequence, if any, not determined, " but without the advertisements or half-title in vol. II bound in). Preserved in drop-spine box covered with antique pea-green cloth, spine label printed on Japanese paper. Previous owner's inscription in pencil to title page of vol. I: "Tillie / from / Bessie Torycross (? )." Minor professional restoration to several tips and spine ends, involving neither lettering nor design. Very Good or better copy (vol. I), pages generally crisp and free of foxing, with finger-soiling to some margins, damp stain to bottom of end papers, several chips and short closed tears to tops of preliminaries (none touching text). Vol. II noticeably brighter, from spine gilt to text, Near Fine or better. The true first edition, preceding the New York edition by more than a month and as such quite scarce and highly collectible. BAL 13659. In the spring of 1849, financially strained, Melville hastily undertook Redburn, assuring his English publisher that the book would be nothing like Mardi; it would contain, Melville wrote, “no metaphysics, no conic-sections, nothing but cakes & ale." In fact, "Redburn is simple in its conception—the story of a naïve adolescent's first trip to sea, based upon Melville's own first voyage...from New York to Liverpool in 1839, at the age of 19....making the novel in many respects a conventional bildungsroman...[But] Redburn is more complex than it seems...[with] multiple narrative voices....[and] overlapping perspectives...Additionally, Redburn is not strictly autobiographical. As in many of his novels, Melville supplemented his experience by borrowing from published sources, and the interplay of these sources renders Redburn's story more complicated than a simple journey from innocence to experience....In the early 20th century, scholars believed Redburn was pure autobiography and viewed it principally as a window into the life of the author of Moby-Dick. As they studied the novel more closely and discovered how much of it Melville had invented or synthesized from other sources, scholars found in Redburn a window into Melville's literary practice and finally a literary creation of interest in its own right."
