Title: Harper’s New Monthly Magazine
Category: Literary, Herman Melville, Mark Twain
Volume: 3
Issue: 5 (No 17)
Date: October 1851
Published in: New York, NY
This issue contains “The Town-ho’s Story,” the first appearance in print of any part of “Moby Dick,” Herman Melville’s greatest work, and arguably the greatest work of American fiction ever published. It is scarce in original wrappers. This is clearly the most important individual issue of “Harper’s Monthly.” Other original appearances of Melville, as well as contributions by Twain, Longfellow and Henry James, are found throughout the run.
