Description:

A very early printing of the first edition, U.K. issue, only two months after the first printing. Printed in America and the same sheets as the American issue and identical in format but for the blue cloth used rather than green. Illustrated by Philip R. Goodwin and Charles Livingston Bull. 8vo, publisher’s original pictorially decorated ribbed navy-blue cloth lettered in gilt and with illustrations of dog sleds on the upper cover in white, red and black, similarly gilt lettered and pictorially decorated on the spine, pictorial endpapers. This binding is identical to the first U.S. but for the colour of the cloth. 231 pp. A very bright and attractive copy, the blue cloth in especially nice condition with no fading and only a little wear or rubbing at the extremities. AN AMERICAN MASTERPIECE AND ONE OF THE "PERFECT" BOOKS. This attractive and bright copy retains the exact format, look and feel of the first issue without commanding the very high price tag that would be associated with a copy of the first issue even approaching this quality. London's classic tale of a St. Bernard--Buck-- who becomes the leader of a pack of wolves in the Klondike after the death of his master. One of the greatest "boys’" books and a vivid memory for countless readers the world over. Like Dickens’ "Christmas Carol" and Hemingway’s "Old Man and The Sea", THE CALL OF THE WILD is one of the really great reads in world literature, constructed with perfection, it has never grown old or passé. Jack London was born in San Francisco, and was the son of an itinerant astrologer and a spiritualist mother. He grew up in poverty and had a number of interesting experiences, including a stint as a sailor on a sealing expedition to Japan. Later, he traveled throughout the United States and Canada and attempted to strike gold in the gold rush of 1897. He was largely self-taught, although he did attend college for one semester. As London became a successful writer, he continued to travel and write fiction and political accounts. These experiences resonate in London’s writing, which evokes struggle, adventure, travel, close ties to the land, and a revolutionary consciousness with regard to economic class. London was remembered by his friend, Upton Sinclair as "‘one of the great revolutionary figures’" of US history. [Ox Compan to Eng Lit]. Bookseller Inventory #
