Moby-Dick by Herman Melville( Book )
197 editions published between 1851 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 3,330 libraries worldwide
"Herman Melville's Moby-Dick is considered by many readers to be the Great American Novel. But most don't know that since its appearance in 1851, it has been revised in substantial ways that alter its original meaning. Melville's masterpiece is described as a "fluid text": it exists in multiple versions, each revealing shifting intentions. The new Longman Critical Edition offers unprecedented access to the revisions that Melville made, the further changes and censoring imposed by his British editors, and controversial alterations made by modern scholars." "Bryant and Springer's introduction engages readers in the personal, social, and cultural context of Melville's novel, his life, and his writing process. To showcase the novel's "fluid text" features, a special typeface indicates hundreds of passages that were later revised, edited, and censored. On-page "Revision Narratives" explain the stories behind the major changes, and Explanatory Notes at the back of the book discuss literary allusions, as well as contemporary social, political, philosophical, and cultural references - some never before explained in any edition." "Concise footnotes and a modern Glossary bring obscure language and nautical terms to life, and diverse illustrations - including a new map of the Pequod's voyage, historical ship diagrams, relevant film stills, and comic-book art - depict whaling life and reveal how Melville's story is still being revised."--Jacket

"Soldier, sailor, prisoner of war, and spy, Israel Potter's lively career leads to encounters with historic figures such as Ben Franklin, John Paul Jones, and George III. Based on the memoirs of a Revolutionary War veteran, this novel was acclaimed by The Village Voice as "hilarious, tender, expressive." This edition also includes Potter's autobiography, The Life and Remarkable Adventures of Israel R. Potter. "--

Mardi and a voyage thither by Herman Melville( Book )
102 editions published between 1849 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,128 libraries worldwide
This is the extended and annotated edition including an extensive biographical annotation about the author and his life. Mardi is Melville's first pure fiction work (while featuring fictional narrators, his previous novels were heavily autobiographical). It details (much like Typee and Omoo) the travelings of an American sailor who abandons his whaling vessel to explore the South Pacific. Unlike the first two, however, Mardi is highly philosophical and said to be the first work to show Melville's true potential. The tale begins as a simple narrative, but quickly focuses upon discourse between the main characters and their interactions with the different symbolic countries they encounter. While not as cohesive or lengthy as Moby-Dick, it shares a similar writing style as well as many of the same themes. (from wikipedia.com)
