One of the lost novels of Melville--lost because it was too far in advance of its time.


By Herman Melville

Author of Moby Dick, Typee, Omoo

A powerful picture of entangled blood relations--a stinging attack on the hypocrisy and snobbery of nineteenth century American society--a novel modern in approach to its daring theme.
E. P. Dutton & Co., 681 Fifth Ave.

Published in New York by E. P. Dutton & Co., the 1929 edition of Melville's Pierre is Google-digitized and accessible online, courtesy of the Hathi Trust Digital Library.
