Summary
Owing to the decline of his contemporary fame and to decades of posthumous neglect, Herman Melville remains enigmatic to readers despite his status as one of America's mose securely canonical authors. [M]ost of his personal papers and letters [have been] lost or destroyed, his library of marked and annotated books dispersed, and first-hand accounts of him scattered, brief, and frequently conflicting. ... [This is] a chronologicall organized collection of surviving testimonials about [Melville.] ... Combining recently discovered evidence with new transcriptions of long-known but rarely consulted testimony, this collection offers the most up-to-date and correct record of commentary on Melville by individuals who knew him. -- Publisher description, from back cover
