Fayaway--Cover of TYPEE in the Barnacle Books / Rare Bird edition

Hot out of the mailbox! This edition contains the Northwestern-Newberry text and my introduction, "Melville as 'The Modern Boccaccio': The Fascinations of Fayaway." For those who do not remember, all during Melville's lifetime his most famous character was Fayaway and he was regarded as America's first literary sex symbol (and heterosexual at that, for the first decades).
