About this Item: Upton Sinclair, 1953. S Unbound. Condition: Very Good. F First Edition. Upton Sinclair. 1953. F First Edition. S Unbound. Very Good. Believed to be the last of Upton Sinclair's unpublished book-length manuscripts in private hands, AMERICAN FABLES is a uniquely important piece of American literary history. Sinclair's body of work dealt with numerous issues and trends in American, life, society and politics during this era, but often as part of a larger, character-driven narrative. AMERICAN FABLES was his signal attempt to synthesize these key threads by combining sections of his work with that of other authors. The work takes the form of 30 "Fables", seventeen of which are Sinclair, thirteen by others including such prominent American authors (and friends) Jack London, Sinclair Lewis, Lincoln Steffens, and John Reed. Also included are contributions by Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr, the noted anarchist Prince Kropotkin, E. W. Scripps, Harry Price, Prynce Hopkins, and others. Sinclair's own seventeen "Fables" are taken from or based on previously published works authored 1923-48, with new unpublished material composed in 1952. The thirteen "Fables" of the other authors (Jack London, Sinclair Lewis, et al.), are mostly from between the wars, but range from 1899 (Kropotkin - a bit of an outlier) to 1951. This work has been much discussed for decades among Sinclair scholars. It has been described as Sinclair's attempt to create a politically-layered, fictionalized history of America between the wars told through key stories taken from his own work and that of others. From what Sinclair told Ron Gottesman, it was intended as a domestic "prequel" of sorts to the Lanny Budd series. It was an outgrowth of several earlier drafts conceived of, it is said, as an American equivalent to the "Arabian Nights" or "One Thousand and One Nights". Gottesman indicated that, after Sinclair worked through a number of drafts for the better part of a decade under a different title (see below), finishing and sending this "final" draft to Sinclair's literary agent Bertha Klausner right around the time of the publication of THE RETURN OF LANNY BUDD in 1953, which was the culmination of the enormous series of eleven volumes begun with WORLD'S END in 1940. Sinclair had expected Viking to publish the work, or to easily find another publisher. But this was not to be, as Senator Joseph McCarthy's incendiary attacks against the Left created such a hostile environment, that it intimidated all potential publishers of this new work by the avowed Socialist and one- time Democratic nominee to be Governor of California. After that first flurry of submissions and what Sinclair described to Gottesman as somewhat panicked rejections, the work sat forgotten for years in the files of Sinclair's literary agent, Bertha Klausner, until it was returned to Sinclair in the 1960's. FORMAT: The work is 400 pages, typed on white watermarked paper (8.5 x 11 inches), with 350 of the 400 leaves bearing holograph additions, corrections, and excisions, mainly by Upton Sinclair, but some in the hand of his wife, author Mary Craig Sinclair, 1 page entirely in holograph. The vast majority of typed leaves are ribbon copies. Pagination is almost entirely supplied by hand (correcting the prior typed pagination). The COLLATION is [1-2], 17-54, [54a], 55-189, 190- 1, 192, 193a-193b, 194-215, 261-17, 218-263, 263a, 264-267, 267a, 268- 284, 285-99, 300-425. PROVENANCE: The estate of Upton Sinclair; by inheritance to his son David, by inheritance to David's wife Jean Sinclair. Ink stamp of Sinclair's literary agent Bertha Klausner on title/index leaf. Upton Beall Sinclair, Jr. (1878-1968), pioneering muckraker, American novelist, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, author of the influential novel THE JUNGLE, which created such public controversy about the meat packing industry that it is in large part credited with the passing of the Pure Food and Drug Act, and ultimately to the creation of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Outside his literary work, Sinclair was notable i. Seller Inventory # 00524461

About this Item: W. Bulmer & Co. [and others], London, 1848. 10 volumes (first series: vols. I-VII; second series: vols. I-III [all published], 4to (11 3/4 x 9 inches). Seven engraved titles, 175 plates, including 91 hand-coloured engraved plates, after Hooker, Withers, Drake, Barbara Cotton, C.J. Robertson, Lady Broughton and others, engraved by W. Say, W. Clark and others, 9 folding plates, numerous illustrations. Uncut. (Minor foxing and browning). Expertly bound to style in half green straight grain morocco and period marbled paper covered boards, spines with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second and fourth, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt Provenance: Dr. Edward Scudamore (1778-1850, ink signatures); Arnold Arboretum (ink stamp on endpaper) A rare complete run of the most important British pomological and botanical journal of its day, and a showcase for the talents of some of the greatest botanical artists working in Britain at the time. The Horticultural Society of London was founded by Sir Joseph Banks, John Wedgwood and others in 1804 and become The Royal Horticultural Society in 1861. The Transactions, the leading horticultural journal of its time, contain valuable contributions on fruits and vegetables, particularly peaches, strawberries, apricots, cherries and gooseberries by T. A. Knight, George Lindley, James Barnet, and Robert Thompson, and others. William Hooker (no relation to Sir William) served as botanical artist to the Horticultural Society (now the Royal Horticultural Society) from 1812 until he retired in 1820. The present work includes a good selection of plates taken from his fruit paintings which, according to Blunt and Stearn, reveal him to have been "one of the greatest pomological artists of all time" (The Art of Botanical Illustration, p. 233). There are also some excellent examples of the work of Sarah Drake (including a particularly fine folding plate of the orchid Cattleya guttata) and Augusta Withers (the luminous quality of the fruit in the Ickworth Imperatrice Plum plate is remarkable), who combined their talents to such memorable effect in James Bateman's Orchidaceae of Mexico and Guatemala (London: 1837-1843) As usual, this set a mixed edition: vols. 1-2, third edition; vol. 3, second edition; vols. 4-7 and second series vols 1-3, first edition. Unusually, this set is uncut, with deckle edges. As many of the plates are printed close to the sheet edge, sets of the Transactions are often found with the plates trimmed into the subject; a fault not found in this uncut set. Complete sets of both the first and second series and complete with all the plates are seldom encountered. Dunthorne 142; Great Flower Books (1990) p. 160; Nissen BBI 2387. Seller Inventory # 29434

About this Item: New York, The Macmillan Company, 1903., 1903. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First edition, first issue, without the author's names on the title page. 8vo. Original gray/blue cloth, with front decoratively stamped in black in an all over floral design and lettered in gilt, t.e.g., others uncut (front hinge a little cracked), else a fine, bright copy. 256 pages. Enclosed in an old worn slipcase. Inscribed by Jack London with a quote from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam on the front free endpaper: "To dear Charles Warren Stoddard* - 'Indeed, indeed, Repentance /oft before / I swore - but was I / sober when I swore?' / Jack London / The Bungalow /June 6, 1903". Issued very early in his career - in fact, in the same year are his now classic "The Call of the Wild" - "The Kempton-Wace Letters" was a collaborative novel consisting of the epistolary discussion of the philosophy of love, written anonymously by Jack London and Anna Strunsky. *Charles Warren Stoddard (1843-1909), California poet and author of many travel narratives. After journeying to Hawaii and Tahiti, he wrote South-Sea Idylls (1873), Hawaiian Life (1894), and The Lepers of Molokai (1885); Jack London borrowed the last title for an article in Woman's Home Companion, January 1908. From 1889 to 1902 Stoddard was professor of English at the Catholic University of America. As evidenced by London's breezy letters to the older Stoddard, the two appear to have been on quite friendly terms. In one letter from 1900, London - referring to Stoddard's books on the South Seas - writes: "You are responsible. You have sown the seeds of unrest in me.". Signed by Author(s).

About this Item: A. Roman & Company; John H. Carmany & Company [et al.], San Francisco, 1931. Condition: Very Good. Magazine. 93 bound volumes and 40 single issues in wrappers. Octavos and folios. A long run of Overland Monthly, California's most important literary magazine of the 19th and early 20th Century. The set includes a near complete run of the original series from July 1868 until December 1875 (lacking only the January 1870 issue, else complete); and a long, near complete run of the second series from 1883 (when it resumed publication) through 1931. In 1923 it merged with Out West to become Overland Monthly and the Out West Magazine, and changed its format from octavo to folio.Founded and first edited by Bret Harte, Overland Monthly established serious literature and progressive social criticism in the American Far West. It quickly won national and international acclaim as a leading literary force in American letters. Ambrose Bierce, Mark Twain, and Harte contributed sardonic stories and verse, and all manner of informal, highly personal commentary which propelled Harte and the magazine to literary celebrity. The magazine gave rise to a new generation of writers, loosely known as the West Coast Romantics, that included Bierce and Harte, John Muir, Willa Cather, Joaquin Miller, Jack London, George Sterling, and fantasy/science fiction writer Clark Ashton Smith, all of whom contributed to the magazine. Among the many important works featured in this long run is Willa Cather's first national published short story, "On the Divide" in 1896; Harte's "The Luck of Roaring Camp," "Dickens in Camp," and "Plain Language from Truthful James"; and Bierce's "The Haunted Valley" and "Grizzly Papers," (in five installments). Mark Twain contributed his famous travel log in four installments: "By Rail Through France," and "A Californian Abroad: A Few Parisian Sights; Three Italian Cities; A Mediaeval Romance."Most volumes are bound in full beige or blue cloth. The original series lacks one monthly issue (January 1870), otherwise it is complete in 14 bound volumes (volumes 1-3, and 5-15), with four unbound issues in wraps (February-May, 1870). Volume 3 from 1869 has the original wrappers and supplements bound in. Volumes 1-6 of the second series is incomplete, consisting of 11 unbound single issues in wraps from 1883-1885 (April 1883; January, April, July, August, September, October, and November 1884; January, March, May 1885), then follows a consecutive run of mostly bound volumes 7-89 from 1886-1931 (with 29 single issues from 1921-22 in wrappers). The bound volumes from 1901-1931 have the original wrappers bound in.An ex-library set with bookplates or ink stamps on the front pastedowns. Two volumes in half calf (from 1895 and 1897) are scuffed and worn, thus good only, about ten volumes and a few single issues in wraps from the 20th Century have some intermittent torn leaves, the volume containing the "San Francisco Fire Number" (May 1906) is split at the gutter with detached leaves, else overall an about very good set. A scarce, large assemblage of many first appearances of important American literary works and articles. A list of notable selections follows:BIERCE, Ambrose1. "Grizzly Papers" (In five parts: January-June 1871).2. "The Haunted Valley" (July 1871).3. "Science" [poem] (October 1874).HARTE, Bret1. "The Luck of Roaring Camp" (August 1868).2. "The Outcasts of Poker Flat" (January 1869).3. "Tennessee's Partner" (October 1869).4. "The Idyl of Red Gulch" (December 1869).5. "Dickens in Camp" (July 1870).6.

About this Item: The Macmillan Company, 1903. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. Philip R. Goodwin & Charles Livingston Bull (illustrator). 1st Edition. This is a jacketed first edition of perhaps the most iconic work of an archetypally American author and giant of early twentieth century literature. Though Jack London had experienced some preceding success as a writer, it was The Call of the Wild, written in his mid-twenties, that brought him fame. London's tale of a pampered California dog who finds his strength, his place, and the brutal gift of his freedom in a savage, primal North met with immediate popularity and critical acclaim. The first printing quickly sold out and the story has since seen a host of successive editions, remaining continuously in print. London's story occupies a pinnacle amid the remarkably prolific output of his short, strenuous, and celebrated literary life. The story's hero, Buck, ranks among the most provocative and best known animal protagonists in literature. To the virtues of the story itself, the first edition lends a striking aesthetic. The distinctive illustrated binding features vertically scored olive cloth with a classic London dog sled scene in three panels on the front cover in red, white, and black, with gilt print on spine and front cover, and a color illustration of the lead sled dog from the front cover repeatedon the spine. Within, the book is profusely illustrated in color by Philip R. Goodwin and Charles Livingston Bull, bound with illustrated endpapers, and printed with generous margins (its thirty two thousand words, more novella-length than novel, nonetheless fill 231 pages). The heavy gray paper dust jacket repeats the front cover illustrations and spine illustrations in dark green print. This copy is very good plus in an original dust jacket. The binding remains tight and bright with sharp corners. Minor wear is primarily confined to extremities. The typical abrasion loss of the white "snow" on the front cover and spine is modest. We note a modest forward lean to the binding. The contents remain bright and clean with a crisp feel. We find no previous ownership marks or spotting. The illustrated endpapers, frontispiece tissue guard, all illustrations, and the two-page Macmillan advertisement bound in at the rear are all intact. The untrimmed fore edges and bottom edges remain exceptionally clean with only slight age-toning, and the top edge gilt is bright. Searching for internal flaws, we note only faint finger smudges at the blank inner margin of page 15. The illustrated dust jacket remains clean with clearly legible print and only perhaps a hint of barely discernible color shift to the spine. The jacket has suffered no repair or reinforcement. It bears unmistakable association with the first edition in the form of color ink from the front cover illustration that has transferred to the front panel verso of the dust jacket. We note chip losses at the spine heel to a maximum .5 inch depth, a .25 inch deep strip loss at the spine head, modest loss to the corners, and fractional wear to the edges and front flap fold. Losses to spine extremities do not impact either title or publisher print. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. References: BAL 11876, Woodbridge 19.

About this Item: The Outing Company, New York, 1923. Condition: Fair. Magazine. 68 bound volumes (most with the original wrappers bound in), and seven loose issues in wrappers. A consecutive run of monthly issues from April 1886 - April 1923. Outing (along with Forest and Stream), was a leading magazine of outdoor sporting literature and activities in the United States. It featured the nature writing of John Burroughs and others, and a range of fiction and nonfiction treating all manner of traditional activities (hunting, fishing, camping, yachting, etc.) as well as new and emerging sports and technologies such as baseball, football, photography, automobiles, and aviation. It also featured many regional photographic surveys, such as Horace Kephart's famous "The Southern Highlander" series, Clifton Johnson's "The Cotton Pickers," and "Mark Twain's Country," and Sumner Matteson's "Red Man and White Man in Colorado's Game Fields" which included some of the earliest photographs of the changing American West. Other notable contributions are Walter Camp's articles on football (including many illustrated with photographs), and Jack London's five-part story: "White Fang" (which provoked a famous dispute with John Burroughs and Theodore Roosevelt on the 'true nature' of nature writing). The magazine is also important for publishing the early work of some of America's best illustrators: Frederic Remington, N.C. Wyeth, Maxfied Parrish, and others.The first 63 volumes from 1886-1917 are small quartos; followed by 5 small folios (containing monthly issues October 1917-September 1922), and seven issues from October 1922-April 1923 loose in wrappers. An ex-library set with most volumes bound in full buckram or quarter linen and dark blue cloth (five early quarto volumes are in contemporary half calf and marbled paper boards); with bookplates, ink stamps, pockets, and some volumes also with scattered perforated stamps on the title pages and plates. The five volumes in half calf are worn, with the boards detached; many early volumes with some scattered loose or detached pages, and a few with missing or torn pages. Overall a fair or better set. Still a nice assemblage of American nature writing and sporting literature in a scarce long run. A list of notable first-appearance contributions follows:CAMP, WalterSix early articles on American football:-"The Foot-Ball Season of 1886" (January 1887)-"The Game and Laws of American Football" (October 1887)-"Hints to Football Captains" (January 1889)-"Review of the Football Season"(In two parts, with photographs: October and November 1892) - "Football Development in 1901" (with photograph) (November 1901)KEPHART, Horace1.
