The mol-ecule of the title compound, C(23)H(17)NO(2), a Schiff base derived from 2-hydr-oxy-1-naphthaldehyde, crystallizes in the keto-amine tautomeric form. The dihedral angle between the aniline and hydroxy-benzene rings is 77.41 (17)°, whereas the planes of the naphthaldehyde and fused aniline benzene rings are nearly coplanar, making a dihedral angle of 8.29 (15)°. Intra-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bonding, a characteristic hydrogen bond for Schiff bases, helps to stabilize the mol-ecular structure. Weak inter-molecular C-H⋯π inter-actions are present in the crystal structure.
