When Ahab finally appears on the quarterdeck, he announces he is out for revenge on the white whale which took one leg from the knee down and left him with a prosthesis fashioned from a whale's jawbone. They provide expert and detailed descriptions, disclose all significant defects and/or restorations, provide clear and accurate pricing, and operate with fairness and honesty during the purchase experience. I suppose that many people in the USA at the time had never seen a whale and knew nothing about the ocean and these chapters perform the task now carried out by television programmes.

Melville began writing Moby-Dick in February 1850 and finished 18 months later, a year after he had anticipated.
