Book Description: Jungle Publishing Company (1906), New York, 1906. Hardcover. First Edition. Bound in full black morocco leather by Root & Son with five raised bands, gilt lettering and dentelles, top edge gilt. First state with the "Sustainer's Edition" label mounted on a front blank. Sinclair's powerful exposure of the Chicago meat-packing industry, still a staple on the menus of many high school reading lists. His account of the social and human abuses of the yards, where packers used "everything about the hog except the squeal," led to major reforms in the industry and, along with UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, is one of the few American novels to have a lasting impact on the way we live our lives. Indeed, when this book was published Jack London said, "What Uncle Tom's Cabin did for black slaves, The Jungle has a large chance to do for the white slaves of today." President Theodore Roosevelt was so shocked by what he read that he made sure a clean meat act, the Pure Food and Drug Bill, was signed into law, popularizing at the time the rather obscure term "muckraker." Later in life, Sinclair said of his masterpiece: "I aimed at the public's heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach." This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on a front blank to Thomas W. Lawson and with a quote in the author's hand from his earlier book JOURNAL OF ARTHUR STIRLING: "'Oh thou black jungle of a world!/There savage beasts through forest midnight roam,/Seeking in sorrow for each other's joy.'" Lawson was a wealthy stock speculator and author of both fiction and nonfiction books concerning the stock market. Although he once paid a florist thirty thousand dollars for a single carnation for his wife, his fortunes declined after writing an expose of the market and he died a relatively poor man. Fine with an outstanding presentation. Bookseller Inventory # 014363

Book Description: Jungle Publishing Co., New York, 1906. Green Cloth. Book Condition: Near Fine. Sustainer's Edition. Octavo. The saga of Jurgis Rudkus, Lithuanian immigrant and new employee at the Chicago stockyards. This work was a runner-up for Robert B. Downs in his BOOKS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD. The printing plates of this Sustainer's Edition, ordered by Sinclair, were the same used for the Doubleday edition which appeared the same day. That likely explains why the impressions of these 5000 copies are much crisper than the Doubleday. This has the perfect type on the copyright page, the subscriber's Sustainer's Edition label pasted to the front pastedown, and the socialist seal on the top cover (which is not on the Doubleday binding). 8vo, green cloth with socialist seal on top cover with a view of the slaughterhouses, with very little flaking of the cover titles and stamping, spine slightly lightened; very fresh text block, inked inscription in 1906 on flyleaf.

Book Description: Doubleday & Company, Inc., New York, 1906. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. Published by Doubleday, Page, & Company, New York, 1906. First edition, first issue, with the first issue point: unbroken "1" in "Published February, 1906" on the copyright page. Small 8vo[5" x 8"], 413 pp.The book is in very good to very good minus condition. Minor wear to the boards with light rubbing at the spine. Previous owner's signature in ink on the front endpaper. Light discoloration at the gutters of page 1 and 161 and to the rear endpaper and paste-down. Faint foxing to the fore-edge of the textblock. The textblock is clean and bright with sound binding. A clear plastic (mylar) cover has been placed over the book for protection and display. A very nice collectible copy of this historic novel that changed the course of food and working regulations in America. Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" is a fictional story about a Lithuanian family's immigration to America and the hardships they face living in the slums of Chicago. Though the story is about a young couple trying to make it in America, the novel became a sensation when the seedy underbelly of the Chicago meat packing industry's shady practices and loose restrictions on grading cattle were brought to light. Sinclair himself went undercover in the meat packing industry of Chicago and his experiences led to the creation of this book. The book was refused by several publishers who found it too shocking to print. The novel focused heavily on the plight of the working man, the exploitation of women and children, and the corruption of those in power; but what caused the most uproar was the use of diseased animals for food production. As a result of public outcry, this novel was the catalyst for strict reforms in the meat packing industry and led to the formation of the Food and Drug Administration.

Book Description: Limited Editions Club, Baltimore, 1965. Hardcover. Fletcher Martin (illustrator). First Illustrated Edition. Tall octavo (7" x 10-7/8") bound appropriately in embossed quarter pigskin and butcher paper sides; 384 pages. The First Illustrated Edition of this modern classic with a new preface by the author. Copy #39 of 1500 with 12 full-color wash-and-ink drawings, 8 full-page and 4 two-page spreads, and 33 two-color line drawings by Fletcher Martin. SIGNED by both the artist and the author on the colophon page. Monthly Letter laid in. An affordable way to acquire a signed copy of this important book, now somewhat uncommon in this condition. Sinclair's powerful exposure of the Chicago meat-packing industry is still a staple on the menus of many high school reading lists. His account of the social and human abuses of the yards, where packers used "everything about the hog except the squeal," led to major reforms in the industry and, along with UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, is one of the few American novels to have a lasting impact on the way we live our lives. Indeed, when this book was published Jack London said, "What Uncle Tom's Cabin did for black slaves, The Jungle has a large chance to do for the white slaves of today." President Theodore Roosevelt was so shocked by what he read that he made sure a clean meat act, the Pure Food and Drug Bill, was signed into law, popularizing at the time the rather obscure term "muckraker." Later in life, Sinclair said of his masterpiece: "I aimed at the public's heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach." Bookplate on the front pastedown. Mild sunning to the spine.
