The Call of the Wild

New York: Macmillan Company, 1903.

Price: $28,500.00

Hardcover. First edition. A touch of rubbing at the bottom of the boards, easily fine with the white painted "snow" on the spine and front board especially bright in a lovely, fine dust jacket with the slightest of rubbing, strong and supple at the folds, and devoid of the usual professional restoration. Housed in a custom quarter green morocco and cloth clamshell case. Along with *White Fang*, one of the two great novels for which the author seems destined to be remembered. His empathy for animals, combined with his appreciation of the Darwinian lessons of life, here overcome London's occasionally simplistic political agenda, resulting in a classic tale for both children and adults. A superior copy.
