True Blue Stirring Stories of Naval Academy Life: Clif Faraday in Command or the Fight of His Life
(New York): (Street & Smith) 1899. First edition. Pages browned, with a few short edge tears, else fine in very good pictorial wrappers with some splitting and chipping around the staples. Most likely written by Sinclair while at Columbia University, when he was struggling to get by as an author of dime novels and pulp fiction; this novelette was no. 39 in the "True Blue Stirring Stories of Naval Academy Life" series. Although not listed by Gottesman, possibly one of the approximately 100 pseudonymous dime novels Sinclair wrote in this period while working his way through graduate school (the Fitch pseudonym was shared with Henry Harrison Lewis and Weldon J. Cobb, writing for the same series, so exact authorship is difficult to attribute). Sinclair did not publish under his own name until his 1901 novel Springtime and Harvest.
