London, Jack

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.

Mason spat out a chunk of ice and surveyed the poor animal ruefully, then put her foot in his mouth and proceeded to bite out the ice which clustered cruelly between the toes. I never saw a dog with a highfalutin name that ever was worth a rap, he said, as he concluded his task and shoved her aside. They just fade away and die under the responsibility. Did ye ever see one go wrong with a sensible name like Cassiar, Siwash, or Husky No, sir! Take a look at Shookum here, hes- Snap! The lean brute flashed up, the white teeth just missing Masons throat. Ye will, will ye A shrewd clout behind the ear with the butt of the dog whip stretched the animal in the snow, quivering softly, a yellow slaver dripping from its fangs.
