Item Description: The Macmillan Company, New York, 1903. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. This is a jacketed first edition of perhaps the most iconic work of an archetypally American author and giant of early twentieth century literature. Though Jack London had experienced some preceding success as a writer, it was The Call of the Wild, written in his mid-twenties, that brought him fame. London's tale of a pampered California dog who finds his strength, his place, and the brutal gift of his freedom in a savage, primal North met with immediate popularity and critical acclaim. The first printing quickly sold out and the story has since seen a host of successive editions, remaining continuously in print. London's story occupies a pinnacle amid the remarkably prolific output of his short, strenuous, and celebrated literary life. The story's hero, Buck, ranks among the most provocative and best known animal protagonists in literature. To the virtues of the story itself, the first edition lends a striking aesthetic. The distinctive illustrated binding features vertically scored olive cloth with an iconic London dog sled scene in three panels on the front cover in red, white, and black, with gilt print on spine and front cover, and a color illustration of the lead sled dog from the front cover repeatedon the spine. Within, the book is profusely illustrated in color by Philip R. Goodwin and Charles Livingston Bull, bound with illustrated endpapers, and printed with generous margins (its thirty two thousand words, more novella-length than novel, nonetheless fill 231 pages). The heavy gray paper dust jacket repeats the front cover illustrations and spine illustrations in dark green print. This copy is very good plus in an original dust jacket. The binding remains tight and bright with sharp corners. Minor wear is primarily confined to extremities. The typical abrasion loss of the white "snow" on the front cover and spine is modest. We note a modest forward lean to the binding. The contents remain bright and clean with a crisp feel. We find no previous ownership marks or spotting. The illustrated endpapers, frontispiece tissue guard, all illustrations, and the two-page Macmillan advertisement bound in at the rear are all intact. The untrimmed fore edges and bottom edges remain exceptionally clean with only slight age-toning, and the top edge gilt is bright. Searching for internal flaws, we note only faint finger smudges at the blank inner margin of page 15. The illustrated dust jacket remains clean with clearly legible print and only perhaps a hint of barely discernible color shift to the spine. The jacket has suffered no repair or reinforcement. It bears unmistakable association with the first edition in the form of color ink from the front cover illustration that has transferred to the front panel verso of the dust jacket. We note chip losses at the spine heel to a maximum .5 inch depth, a .25 inch deep strip loss at the spine head, modest loss to the corners, and fractional wear to the edges and front flap fold. Losses to spine extremities do not impact either title or publisher print. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. References: BAL 11876, Woodbridge 19.

Item Description: Macmillan,, New York, 1903. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. In a typed letter (90 words) signed by Jack London in November of 1909, and laid into this copy, the popular novelist responds to a query by a seller of pencils remarking two things: yes he is the author of THE CALL OF THE WILD and why does it seem he owes a few more cents on pencils he thought he had already paid for? In this brief note London displays both the amiability and the forthrightness for which the famous author was already well known. An extraordinary note. See photo. Green cloth with decorative vignettes on front board and spine in white, dark orange, and dark green, gilt lettering on front cover and spine, top edge gilt, decorative end papers of glaciers and a dog sled in light blue, illustrated frontispiece with tissue guard, title page printed with blue decoration of a glacier, illustrators names in header and footer, lettering and head of dog printed in black, 10 full-page illustrations inserted in addition to frontispiece, other illustrations within the text, 2 pages of advertisements in the rear. Book is truly fresh in its original colors. Gilt lettering quite bright. Front hinge has a 2 inch crack. Back hinge has been glued. Dust jacket is 99% complete but has a complete split at the spine with some restoration tape only visible on the verso. Some edge wear. Mylar holds the jacket together well. Comes with a custom made clamshell slip case with gilt titles. See pictures. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 003637

Item Description: New York: Macmillan, 1903, 1903. First Edition; first printing of Jack LondonÕs best-known book. Very good in dust jacket. It has been put forth by a respected, observant and thoughtful colleague that jacket imprints with the letters identically sized (for one thing) were first printings, and that those with first letters larger (i.e. The Macmillan Company) are from subsequent printings, and that is admittedly possible. However, this present copy is of the latter variety, emerging from an old New England house, and does not appear to have been ÒmarriedÓ to the book (but one canÕt be certain). Undoubtedly, variants exist, but whether these are states (a change made during printing, often due to broken type) or separate printings is entirely undetermined and perhaps undeterminable. Given the non-automated nature of book production at that time, a stack of books and a stack of dust jackets might have well been combined in reverse order. Any resolution of this conundrum is hopelessly confused by the later combination of books and jackets, so no definitive bibliographical designation seems likely. One is left with little choice or basis but to refer to them as what they are beyond disagreement: variants. It appears to this cataloguer to represent yet one more example of publishers seeing no gain in anticipating the future questions, suppositions, or conclusions of bibliographers, likely dismissing such concerns as trivial, given that these dealt with minutiae. In the larger scheme of things, they are minutiae, but in the view of those of us to whom such things matter, they might be minute, but they arenÕt petty. Bookseller Inventory # 34037

Item Description: Macmillan Company, New York, 1903. Hardcover. First edition. Publisher's promotional pamphlet laid in. Small leather bookplate of Neva and Guy Littell on the front pastedown. A little rubbing to the painted "snow" on the spine and front board else a bright, just about fine copy, lacking the dustwrapper. Laid into this copy is a Typed Letter Signed from Rockwell Kent on his Ausable Forks stationery, to Guy Littell, head of R.R. Donnelley and Sons, dated 25 March 1929, which reads in full: "Dear Mr. Littell: Even before any consideration of the book that you have suggested to me to illustrate, let me express my appreciation of the indulgence you show in considering the continuance of any relations with so rank a procrastinator. I am going to try to have learned one lesson from this experience and make no plans ahead. In evidence of this let me assure you that I am sending Mr. Kittredge, by this same mail, a big package of drawings. I have not read the 'Call of the Wild,' but will do so. Faithfully yours, Rockwell Kent." We infer from this that Littell suggested that Kent illustrate *The Call of the Wild*, a commission Kent ultimately did not accept. One of the two great novels, along with *White Fang*, for which the author seems destined to be remembered. His empathy for animals, combined with his appreciation of the Darwinian lessons of life, overcome London's occasionally simplistic political agenda, resulting in a classic tale for both children and adults.

Overall, a clean and sturdy copy. BAL 11876. Originally published serially in The Saturday Evening Post in 1903, The Call of the Wild is the story of a domesticated dog harnessing his wild instincts during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon Territory. The novel is written from the point of view of the main character Buck, a St. Bernard-Scotch Collie, who is stolen from his happy home in California and, after being mistreated by a series of handlers along the way, is taken to the Klondike region of Canada to be trained to work as a sled dog. Although he struggles to adapt to pack life, Buck quickly proves himself, becomes pack leader, and eventually finds a new, benevolent owner, with whom he remains until the owner's death, at which point Buck goes completely "into the wild." n 1906, London published the companion novel White Fang, the thematic opposite of The Call of the Wild; while The Call of the Wild concerns a dog's natural wild instincts, White Fang is about an undomesticated creature's ability to be tamed.
