A correction.

In this August 6th post I first announced the Moby-Dick project, but I incorrectly listed the page count for the Signet Classic paperback version of the book that I am using as my benchmark.

I originally thought that, excluding the Introduction and Melville's "Extracts," the book had 540 pages. A closer look last night revealed that the final chapter, Chapter 135: The Chase - Third Day, begins on page 540 but that the last page of the book, which is an Epilogue, is really page 552. So it turns out I have 12 more pages to draw for than I thought.

This is the version I am using, with a cover by Claus Hoie entitled "Pursuit of the Great White Whale."
