About this Item

First edition, first issue. Illustrated with a colour frontispiece. 8vo, publisher’s original blue cloth, pictorially decorated and lettered in black, orange and white on the upper cover and in gilt, black, orange and white on the spine. (6), 392, 4 ads pp. A very nice, bright copy, very well preserved, fresh and clean. FIRST EDITION IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH. This tale by London is of a love triangle on a large western ranch. [The novel] was meant to exalt the splendor of Wolf House and scientific farming and sex. "It is all sex, from start to finish--" he wrote to the editor of Cosmopolitan, "in which no sexual adventure is actually achieved or comes within a million miles of being achieved, and in which, nevertheless, is all the guts of sex, coupled with strength.".As in THE SEA-WOLF, Jack split his own role between the two male protagonists, the ranch owner Dick Forrest and the romantic adventurer Evan Graham. Forrest is Jack’s ideal of the rich commercial rancher of the future, the owner of 250,000 acres worked on strict scientific principles. Evan Graham is another version of Dick Forrest, but he has chosen to remain a writer and a wanderer - the escapist ideal of Jack himself. Both men compete for the love of Dick’s wife, Paula - a vision of Charmian as the elegant hostess, the athletic horsewoman, and the Eternal Kid of Jack’s fantasies.[Sinclair].
