JOHN BARLEYCORN. Jack London.

JOHN BARLEYCORN

New York: The Century Co., 1913. First edition. Hardcover. Jack London cut a mythic figure across the American landscape of the early twentieth century. But throughout his colorful life, he retained a predilection for drinking on a prodigious scale. London's classic "alcoholic memoirs" - the closest thing to an autobiography he ever wrote - are a startlingly honest and vivid account of his life not only as a drinker, but also as a storied adventurer. Eight plates by H.T. Dunn. Octavo. Original black cloth binding, with gilt titles. Extremely faint offsetting to the front endpaper. Mild dust staining to the top edge, with a bit of light foxing along the extremities. The boards are a trifle edgeworn; otherwise very good. Very Good. Item #69936

Price: $100.00
