Dutch Courage and Other Stories: 100th Anniversary Collection

by Jack London




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 illustrations. 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.

ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS: Published years after his death, this is a collection of Jack's short stories that were not previously published in any collection. Most of them are some of the first stories that he ever wrote. "Typhoon off the Coast of Japan" won a writing contest when he was 17. Many of these stories describe adventures on sealing schooners and other sailing vessels. One is set in the Klondike Gold Rush while another highlights climbing Half Dome in Yosemite. The final story is set in Mexico during their Revolution in 1914.
