About this Item

Original greenish-black cloth with silver belt design and lettering in silver and greenish-black, octavo, (252) pp, flyleaf at rear. Frontispiece by Maynard Dixon. The first printing, numbering 2028 copies, was on March 21, 1900. Jacob Blanck in the "Bibliography of American Literature" (BAL) clearly identified the primary feature distinguishing first printing from the nearly identical 2nd and 3rd printings, namely, the collation. An earlier reference "Jack London: A Bibliography" by Hensley Woodbridge, et al, made some statements in error regarding this title which still persist. This copy with first printing collation per BAL, and with tipped-in (not sewn) frontispiece, as well as the misplaced comma following the year, 1900, on copyright page (corrected with a period on subsequent printings). These 2 points are found only on BAL first printing collation. BAL 11869, Sisson & Martens page 2. Bit of loss to silver design at spine ends and corners of front board, small stain to upper margin of facing pages 70 and 71, else very good. Bookseller Inventory # 21325
