The present copy, is the earliest bound copy. There is no type breakage on pages 65 or 67. (Even the Library of Congress copy has type breakage on page 65. One of the Harvard copies has broken type.) This copy, as noted above, is hand bound rather than machine bound and has the binder's marks in pencil present throughout the volume; binding shows light wear at extremities, more obvious on the silver areas; inner hinges starting, but strong. A very good copy of this very rare issue in custom morocco backed slipcase.. First Edition. Octavo.

Perfect (&) On Spine (Not Present Here, At Least Design Is Not Standard Ampersand But Also Not Defective, Just A Different Symbol); 2. Perfect "E" In "Spruce" And Perfect "T" In "Might" In The Bottom Two Lines, Page 147 (Present Here, And Henry's Second And Third States And Later Issues Have Imperfect Letters); 3.

THE SON OF THE WOLF

London, Jack

Boston and NY: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, (1900). Early reprint (unrecorded). Some rubbing to cover design, minor wear to edges of covers, but very good. Bright green pictorial cloth with title and illustration of trapper and dog outlined in cream; octavo; (252) pp followed by blank leaf. Frontispiece by Maynard Dixon. Collation differs from the 3 printings of the first edition described in BAL. This printing has the most regular collation with all gatherings in 8s; the last page of text independent of the last gathering and contiguous with the final blank leaf. Cover design is the same as BAL first edition, third printing "new style" binding though that issue has the title blocked in red on the front cover. The ampersand in the publisher's imprint at foot of spine is a typographic oddity bearing little resemblance to an actual ampersand. BAL 11869; Sisson/Martens page 2.
