About this Item

Originally conceived as a "child's jingle" and published by the San Francisco Call in 1899, The Sea Sprite and the Shooting Star in all of its very few editions has been an ephemerum. This is the first separately published edition, and only 17 of London's poems achieved such separate publication ? the prose output dominating public interest and until recently, scholarship. Recent research (Wichlan, Complete Poetry of Jack London, 2007) suggests that this was printed at the => Keesling Press in Campbell, California. The number of copies printed is unknown. 8vo (25.5 cm; 10"). [2] ff. BAL 11989; Woodbridge, p. 275. Printed on heavy, textured card stock and folded lengthwise once to form a booklet. Front cover irregularly age-toned; interior facing pages, displaying whole poem, very fresh and nice. Bookseller Inventory # 30148
