Presumed mixed state. 413 pp. Octavo [20 cm]. Green cloth with titles stamped in white on front board and backstrip. Small two tone illustration of factories on front board. Black stamped illustration of clasped hands across the globe. Copyright page reads: "Copyright, 1905, 1906, by / Upton Sinclair. / Published February, 1906." Unbroken type, but without "Sustainer's Edition" label. Minor bumping to corners. Subtle rubbed spot on front board at center of factory illustration. Front inner hinge cracked (but holding).
Sinclair's ode to the working poor. Sinclair's work was an instant bestseller, and is responsible for the Pure Food & Drug Act. A modern high point.
