London, Jack
1903 - Illustrated by Philip R. Goodwin and Charles Livingston Bull. Decorated by Chas. Edw. Hooper. Toronto: George N. Morang & Company, 1903. Original blue-green cloth pictorially decorated in white, black and light blue. First Canadian Edition of one of Jack London's best-known books. Buck, part St. Bernard and part Scotch shepherd, is reared in luxury on a California estate, is stolen, beaten and shipped to the Klondike to become a sled dog, and (after the death of his master) heeds the call of the wild and abandons human civilization to lead a wolf pack. As S&M points out, this Canadian edition collates the same as Macmillan's U.S. edition, except for both sides of the title leaf and the lack of an ad leaf at the rear; the binding design is also the same, but with a different color cloth and slightly different color design.~This is a bright, near-fine copy (very minor rubbing at some edges) -- of an edition that is considerably scarcer than Macmillan's. Sisson & Martens pp 119-120; Blanck 11876. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Sumner & Stillman [ABAA] [Yarmouth, ME, U.S.A.]
