White Fang [With Cheque Signed by Jack London]
New York: the MacMillan Company 1906, 1st Edition. () viii, 327, [4] publisher's ads. Very good. 12mo. Original blue-ish green publisher's cloth with gilt titles to spine and titles and decoration of a wolf to front board. Very light shelfwear and bumping to boards. A few light chips in the cloth at the head of spine. Light rubbing to wolf scene on front board. Internally tight and clean with one marginal tear, archivally repaired. Laid in is a Bank of Hawaii cheque signed by Jack London. The first edition of London's classic tale of a wolf-dog hybrid's domestication in the Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush. This copy, like most, has the title page tipped in on a cancel; the precedence and existence of the integral title page seems to be an unresolved issue (Sissons and Martens 30). Included with the book is a Bank of Hawaii cheque for $8 signed by London. The cancelled cheque has two ink stamps on the verso, one on the recto, and a two closed tears (an additional cancel). An attractive copy of the first edition..
