The Call Of the Wild

by London, Jack

Show all copies

Jack London’s The Call of the Wild is an anthropomorphic canine’s unforgettable tale of survival. Set during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, the novel’s main character, Buck, a large and powerful St. Bernard-Scotch Shepherd, is stolen from his ranch home in Santa Clara Valley, California, and sold into service as a sled dog. At first, Buck experiences violence and struggles for survival, becoming progressively feral in the harsh environment. By the end, Buck relies on his instinct and learned experience to emerge as the proven leader of the pack. 

In The Call of the Wild, author Jack London blends his experience as a gold prospector in the Canadian wilderness with his ideas about nature and the struggle for existence, influenced by the work of Darwin and Nietzsche. Thus, although the novel is first and foremost a story about a dog, it displays a philosophical depth absent in most animal adventures.

In the summer of 1903, the story was first serialized in four installments in The Saturday Evening Post, which paid $750 for it. Soon after, London sold all rights to The Call of the Wild to Macmillan, which published the story in book format in August of that same year. As the first printing of 10,000 copies sold out immediately, it is safe to say the novel was enormously popular from the moment it was published. It has since secured its place in the canon of American literature. Today, The Call of the Wild is still one of the best-known stories written by an American author and has been published in almost 50 languages. The Call of the Wild is ranked 35th on The Guardian’s list of the 100 best novels and 88th on Modern Library’s “100 Best” English-language novels of the 20th century.

It may come as some surprise to the amateur collector to learn about some of Jack London's exploits; the famous author of White Fang, and Call of the Wild. Like all of the very best of authors, Jack London remains a controversial figure - many facets of his life subsequently played down by the established literary scene, but fascinating reference material for the antiquarian!

Jack London became a committed socialist in later life, however he would not regard himself to belong to a Leninist, Marxist, or other similar strands of communist thought. Instead, he may be regarded in the same way as the United Kingdom's beloved socialist writer; George Orwell. Jack London believed in a sort of American egalitarian socialism, one that was founded on the principles of the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights: that America, the land of the Free and the Brave, could be a place where all seek to share in hard work and the rewards thereof. It is no surprise then, that London was drawn to the North and to Alaska and the Northern Territories as one of the 'last bastions' of freedom even then, at the turn of the twentieth century.

Jack London was so phenomenally successful even in his own life; his name being accepted into the great American cannon of classics; that there exists a good amount of collectively first edition material - even many signed editions (although these may be prohibitively expensive). A true first edition, in fine condition with London's signature; of one of his more famous works; say White Fang (MacMillian 1906), could be found at auction for as little as $3,000. A signed first edition of Call of the Wild however (MacMillan 1903) could cost as much as $17,000.

It is worth noting that Jack London's mortal success was so great however, that it may work against the collector in some instances. Shortly after his death his daughter took to 'rubber stamping' his signature on first edition books to increase their value (and at the publishers request, it has to be admitted). Whilst these secondary sorts of signature aren't the true first article, they are nevertheless very interesting articles in the Jack London story. One very good example of this would be the 1917 edition of The Human Drift (MacMillan) which was collected and published three years after Jack London's death, but 'signed' by his daughter. This can be found for as little as $750, and, although not a true first, is itself an important part of the London story.

The Call of the Wild

Jack London

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1903. Philip R. Goodwin & Charles Livingston Bull.First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed first edition of perhaps the most iconic work of an archetypally American author and giant of early twentieth century literature.  Though Jack London had experienced some preceding success as a writer, it was The Call of the Wild, written in his mid-twenties, that brought him fame.  London's tale of a pampered California dog who finds his strength, his place, and the brutal gift of his freedom in a savage, primal North met with immediate popularity and critical acclaim.  The first printing quickly sold out and the story has since seen a host of successive editions, remaining continuously in print. London's story occupies a pinnacle amid the remarkably prolific output of his short, strenuous, and celebrated literary life.  The story's hero, Buck, ranks among the most provocative and best known animal protagonists in literature.

To the virtues of the story itself, the first edition lends a striking aesthetic. The distinctive illustrated binding features vertically scored olive cloth with a classic London dog sled scene in three panels on the front cover in red, white, and black, with gilt print on spine and front cover, and a color illustration of the lead sled dog from the front cover repeated on the spine.  Within, the book is profusely illustrated in color by Philip R. Goodwin and Charles Livingston Bull, bound with illustrated endpapers, and printed with generous margins (its thirty two thousand words, more novella-length than novel, nonetheless fill 231 pages).  The heavy gray paper dust jacket repeats the front cover illustrations and spine illustrations in dark green print.

This copy is very good plus in an original dust jacket.  The binding remains tight and bright with sharp corners.  Minor wear is primarily confined to extremities.  The typical abrasion loss of the white "snow" on the front cover and spine is modest.  We note a modest forward lean to the binding.  The contents remain bright and clean with a crisp feel.  We find no previous ownership marks or spotting.  The illustrated endpapers, frontispiece tissue guard, all illustrations, and the two-page Macmillan advertisement bound in at the rear are all intact.  The untrimmed fore edges and bottom edges remain exceptionally clean with only slight age-toning, and the top edge gilt is bright.  Searching for internal flaws, we note only faint finger smudges at the blank inner margin of page 15.

The illustrated dust jacket remains clean with clearly legible print and only perhaps a hint of barely discernible color shift to the spine.  The jacket has suffered no repair or reinforcement.  It bears unmistakable association with the first edition in the form of color ink from the front cover illustration that has transferred to the front panel verso of the dust jacket.  We note chip losses at the spine heel to a maximum .5 inch depth, a .25 inch deep strip loss at the spine head, modest loss to the corners, and fractional wear to the edges and front flap fold.  Losses to spine extremities do not impact either title or publisher print.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Magazine. 93 bound volumes and 40 single issues in wrappers. Octavos and folios. A long run of *Overland Monthly*, California's most important literary magazine of the 19th and early 20th Century. The set includes a near complete run of the original series from July 1868 until December 1875 (lacking only the January 1870 issue, else complete); and a long, near complete run of the second series from 1883 (when it resumed publication) through 1931. In 1923 it merged with Out West to become *Overland Monthly and the Out West Magazine*, and changed its format from octavo to folio. Founded and first edited by Bret Harte, *Overland Monthly* established serious literature and progressive social criticism in the American Far West. It quickly won national and international acclaim as a leading literary force in American letters. Ambrose Bierce, Mark Twain, and Harte contributed sardonic stories and verse, and all manner of informal, highly personal commentary which propelled Harte and the magazine to literary celebrity. The magazine gave rise to a new generation of writers, loosely known as the West Coast Romantics, that included Bierce and Harte, John Muir, Willa Cather, Joaquin Miller, Jack London, George Sterling, and fantasy/science fiction writer Clark Ashton Smith, all of whom contributed to the magazine. Among the many important works featured in this long run is Harte's "The Luck of Roaring Camp," "Dickens in Camp," and "Plain Language from Truthful James," and Bierce's "The Haunted Valley" and "Grizzly Papers," (in five installments). Mark Twain contributed his famous travel log in four installments: "By Rail Through France," and "A Californian Abroad: A Few Parisian Sights; Three Italian Cities; A Mediaeval Romance." Willa Cather's short story "On the Divide" appeared in 1896. Most volumes are bound in full beige or blue cloth. The original series lacks one monthly issue (January 1870), otherwise it is complete in 14 bound volumes (volumes 1-3, and 5-15), with four unbound issues in wraps (February-May, 1870). Volume 3 from 1869 has the original wrappers and supplements bound in. Volumes 1-6 of the second series is incomplete, consisting of 11 unbound single issues in wraps from 1883-1885: (April 1883; January, April, July, August, September, October, and November 1884; January, March, May 1885), then follows a consecutive run of mostly bound volumes 7-89 from 1886-1931 (with 29 single issues from 1921-22 in wrappers). The bound volumes from 1901-1931 have the original wrappers bound in. An ex-library set with bookplates or ink stamps on the front pastedowns. Only two volumes in half calf (from 1895 and 1897) are scuffed and worn, thus good only, about ten volumes and a few single issues in wraps from the 20th Century have some intermittent torn leaves, the volume containing the "San Francisco Fire Number" (May 1906) is split at the gutter with detached leaves, else overall an about very good set. A scarce, large assemblage of many first appearances of important American literary works and articles. A list of notable selections is available.

Selling First Edition or Rare Books to Peter Harrington.

John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney, January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American novelist, journalist, and social activist. A pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone.

Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen", and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf.

London was part of the radical literary group "The Crowd" in San Francisco and a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers. He wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
