1 London, Jack The Cruise of the Dazzler (St. Nicholas Magazine for Young Folks, Volume XXIX, Number 9)
Union Square, New York The Century Company 1902 First Edition Original Wraps Burns, Michael J. 
In Very Good+ condition. Oversized cream-colored wraps printed in orange and black. Pps. 770 - 863 of volume XXIX. This magazine is in excellent, clean condition with a few faint specks and with modest wear at the spine-ends and at the edges of the wraps. The text is quite clean and bright; no previous ownership markings. The binding is sound. Published in July of 1902, this magazine which includes an abridgement of 'The Cruise of the Dazzler,' (twenty-eight pages with double-columns of text), actually preceeded the hardcover first edition by three months (Century would publish the book in October of that year under the St. Nicholas books imprint). This is part of the magazine's series of long-stories-complete-in-one-issue. A rare and intriguing item for the London collector, being the first publication of his first novel (following early collections of short stories). ".Joe Bronson, dissatisfied and unhappy in school, decides to run away to sea. He falls in with the infamous 'bay pirates,' those some-time fishermen and oyster dredgers who, in reality, used their boats as convenient transport to rob business along the San Francisco bay at the turn of the century. It is readily and quite soon apparent to Joe that perhaps school isn't quite so bad after all; and after befriending 'Frisco Kid,' another young member of the crew they finally are able to cast off the shackles to 'French Pete,' the captain of the Dazzler and restart their lives."

2 London, Jack The Game
New York Macmillan 1905 First Edition Cloth Hutt, Henry & Lawrence, T. C. 
Very Good in the publisher's original full green cloth. The spine is stamped in white and gilt; the decorative front board in white and red. Top edge gilt. Pictorial endpapers. 182pps., plus ads, 5 color plates, a frontispiece, and numerous line drawings. Second state, with the 'Metropolitan Magazine' stamp on the copyright page. There is light rubbing wear to the tips and spine-ends and uniform browning to the pages. Sporadic fox-marks. The front hinge is just starting, though the binding is stable; all pages are intact. No previous ownership markings. Comes with a glassine wrapper to preserve the boards in their clean condition.

"On the eve of their wedding, twenty-year-old Jack Fleming arranges a secret ringside seat for his sweetheart to view her only rival: the 'game.' Through Genevieve's apprehensive eyes, we watch the prizefight that pits her fair young lover, 'the Pride of West Oakland,' against the savage and brutish John Ponta and that reveals as much about her own nature, and Joe's, as it does about the force that drives the two men in their violent, fateful encounter."
