‘Timoleon, Etc.

‘Timoleon, Etc.: An online electronic text of the first edition (1891)’ by Herman Melville and Paul Royster (editor & depositor)

It’s sadly interesting that Timoleon, Etc., Herman Melville’s last published book, had a print run of only 25 copies. Think about that. The man who wrote one of the classic American novels of the 19th century (Moby Dick) finished his writing career in utter obscurity. For readers interested in the title poem “Timoleon”, compare with Plutarch’s life of Timoleon.
