Book Overview
Jack London books by SeaWolf Press were selected for sale by the Jack London Museum. A beautfiul version with the first edition cover and original frontispiece . This edition is part of the 100th Anniversary Collection honoring the 100th anniversary of Jack London's death in 1916. In his short 20-year career, he produced more than 50 books. The text and illustrations in this collection are taken from his early publications and the covers are replicas of the first edition covers. Fonts common 100 years ago are used--Century for the text and Bembo on the cover. The book's original format is matched as much as possible. An interesting science fiction story involving a prisoner, Darrell Standing, at San Quentin State Prison who is serving a life sentence for murder. His jailers routinely torture him using a canvas device called 'the jacket' to squeeze his entire body. He learns to withstand the torture by entering a trance state where he travels among the stars and experiences past lives.
