About this Item

First edition, first issue with unbattered type on copyright dates. Publisher's imprint on title page. Book is gorgeous with green pictorial boards. The front cover is perfect with no loss to the white lettering. The white lettering to the spine has worn off, but the title, author and publisher are quite readable. This is the only thing keeping this book from being Near Fine. Tight, and clean. One of the few books ever published to have a direct, immediate and significant impact on American society and thought. Although Sinclair's intent was to expose the abusive labor conditions in the Chicago stockyards as a means of promoting socialism, the American public was more horrified by the novel's vivid depiction of unsanitary conditions in the slaughterhouses and meat-processing plants, and as a result the U.S. Pure Food and Drug Act was passed.
