Moby-Dick at SUNY Albany

The exhibit of a selection from Mr. Pettit's Moby-Dick collection is now open at the main library of SUNY's Albany campus.  The exhibit focuses on foreign-language editions and on illustrations of Ahab.  It will apparently be on view only through April 24, so don't procrastinate if you happen to be in the Albany area. 

An interview with Mr. Pettit about his Moby-Dick obsession can be found here.
