London, Jack
The Call of the Wild
New York: The Macmillan Company, 1903. First Edition. First edition, first printing of the author's best-loved work. Bound in publisher's ribbed green cloth, decoratively stamped; top edge gilt. A fine copy, with previous owner name to half-title page and trivial rubbing to cloth at extremities and a tiny nick to the edge of the front board. In a Fine dust jacket with faint toning to spine, and a tiny mark to the rear panel and spine. A fantastic copy, but more importantly, an honest copy, with no restoration or funny business: the offsetting from white "snow" of boards onto verso of dust jacket, suggesting this copy has not been married to its jacket, a sentiment echoed by the freshness of the book itself. Housed in a custom quarter-leather folding case. Fine / Fine. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Burnside Rare Books [United States]
