"Walker Illustrated Classics" is a new series which brings together some of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists. These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and re-read. The classics have never looked so good! Haunted by prophesies of his own death, Captain Ahab hunts the vast waters of the Pacific in search of the great white whale that has become his obsession. This towering novel has been sympathetically edited to a tenth of its original length, focussing on the exciting chase at the core of the book, as all but one of the Pequods loyal crew are sacrificed to Ahab's great obsession. A true classic of American literature is brought to life in this lavish illustrated edition.
