Sell Your Upton Sinclair Jungle 1st Edition Book
Here is an Upton Sinclair Jungle 1st edition book we have sold in the past:
Upton Sinclair signed first printing of “The Jungle” published by The Jungle Publishing Co.: New York: 1906. All first printing points present: “brass buttons” on page 42; “eight dollars” on page 82; unbroken type on “1” on copyright page; and normal-sized “3” on page 385. This copy does not have the “Sustainers Edition” label apparent on the front pastedown (normally signifying first printing), but two bookplates are there, which may be concealing the label or the reason it was removed. Presentation copy, inscribed by Sinclair on the front free endpaper to Christian Socialist activist, Dr. George D. Herron: “To Geo. D. Herron with sincerest gratitude + affection from the Author [underlined] / Princeton N.J. Feb 17th ’06.” Inscription is dated eleven days before the book’s publication to a prominent Socialist contemporary of Sinclair’s. Bound in publisher’s full green cloth, decoratively black and white stamped front board and spine. Light sunning to spine, short tear to upper margin of half-title page, and page 1 loose but present. Evidence of sticker removal on rear pastedown, blocks of toning to verso of front free endpaper and first blank. Bookplates of Americana and Bret Harte collector Willard S. Morse on both pastedowns (the plate on the rear pastedown seems to be an identification plate from his library, with manuscript notes in an unknown hand), and the bookplate of famed surgeon, Dr. Elmer Belt, also on the front pastedown. A very good copy, and an excellent association copy, with a fine inscription to a fellow socialist. Sold for $2,800.
