The Son of the Wolf: Tales of the Far North

By Jack London; Charles N. Watson | Go to book overview

NOTE ON THE TEXT
The text of each tale has been set from a photocopy of the first printing of the first American edition of the book in which it initially appeared. In this I have followed the example Earle Labor, Robert C. Leitz III, and I. Milo Shepard, editors of The Complete Short Stories of Jack London ( Stanford, 1993), who point out that the editors of the book collections followed London's own corrected manuscripts, whereas the magazine texts often contained unauthorized alterations based on house styling or editorial taste. In this collection the only deviations from the first-edition texts are the correction of the rare typographical error and the introduction of such British conventions as the elimination of the period after an abbreviated title ('Dr', 'St', etc.) and the substitution of single for double quotation marks. I am grateful to the staff of the Special Collections Department of the Syracuse University Libraries for supplying me with photocopies of those first editions of London texts that were not in my own collection.First periodical publication for each tale is listed below, along with first book publication for tales collected in volumes other than The Son of the Wolf.
