1949 Dodd, Mead and Co. Library book Moby Dick
Sometimes its just amazing what Ebay yields! After the book arrives home, completely unexpected, surprises galore.
I knew from the photo during the auction that this copy was beat, but what I did not expect was that it is from a grade school in Vermont and it turns out this grade school is the school that my good friend Mark went to, and was there during this book's tour of duty.
Not only that, I was attending college just down the road when many of these date stamps were applied.
So it was connected by time and space to the both of us!
Shout out to Pete H. who took the book out multiple times and gave it the big effort, no idea if he finished it.
