  • London, Jack.

    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Macmillan, 1914. Hardcover first edition - A novel partially based on London's voyage around Cape Horn in 1912 - it is unfortunately marred by overt racism and the concept of white supremacy (those in command on the ship are fair-skinned, while those who toil are of the 'swarthy races.' Color frontispiece. Basis for three films. 378 pp.

    Condition: Very good in a contemporary or early half leather binding - blue cloth with tan leather, gilt titling on the spine and tooling to the edges of the leather, bluegreen marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. (other Jack London first editions in matching binding available). Some rubbing to the corners and sides of the spine, previous owner's name, but overall a sturdy and attractive copy.
