About this Item

345pp, plate, map, 4pp. ads., title-page defective. With 18 tipped-in original photographs of Charmian. Original cloth, rebacked with original backstrip laid down Provenance: Presentation copy inscribed by Charmian: "In sweet recollection of wonderful friendship between Vladimir and Charodeyka - you and me." This book describes the life of Jack London and his wife Charmian in Hawaii between 1907 and 1915. A fine association copy, enhanced with a number of original photographs of Charmian, including a portrait inscribed, "To Sam From Charmian." On page 278 there is a lovely reference to the Russian-born American Vladimir and his wife, describing how he once saved the entire crew of the barquentine Klikitat off Maui virtually single-handedly. He adopted the name of his ship, "Sam Johnson" as Americans could not cope with his Russian name and his wife became "Pearl." Of the few presentation copies of this book at auction, the present copy has by far the most touching inscription and no others are enhanced with so many original photographs. The photographs range from tomboyish outdoor snapshots of Charmian, to more lady-like studio portraits. Bookseller Inventory # 2995
