Description of the book "Israel Potter: His Fifty Year of Exile, Volume Eight, Scholarly Edition":

Unique among Melville's works, Israel Potter was the author's only historical novel, presuming to offer the life history of Revolutionary War figure Israel Potter—based on Potter's own obscure narrative Life and Remarkable Adventures of Israel R. Potter—and featuring characters such as Benjamin Franklin and Ethan Allen. In offering the manuscript to his publisher, Melville assured him, "I engage that the story shall contain nothing of any sort to shock the fastidious. There will be very little reflective writing in it- nothing weighty. It is adventure." This came as a relief, for his previous novel, Pierre PDF, had shocked readers and brought down universal castigation.
