Incipits: Melville, The Encantadas or Enchanted Isles

Take five-and-twenty heaps of cinders dumped here and there in an outside city lot; imagine some of them magnified into mountains, and the vacant lot the sea; and you will have a fit idea of the general aspect of the Encantadas, or Enchanted Isles.

Herman MELVILLE, The Encantadas or Enchanted Isles, 1854.
