Description: London, Jack. BEFORE ADAM. NY: MacMillan, February, 1907. 8vo. Double-page map and 8 color plates. Bound in publisher's decorative cloth. Spine a bit toned and with slight skew, stain to rear board, front gutter cracked, one ad leaf removed and other with various clippings laid down (with same to rear blank and pastedown), small bookseller's sticker to rear pastedown, else Very Good. ******************************************* First edition. Presentation copy inscribed and signed by London on front blank and with small photo of London laid onto pastedown. Inscription reads, in part, "Dear Doctor Beadnell, In acknowledgement of a happy correspondence, and of your personal researches.... which have afforded me great pleasure in the reading and which have been most valuable in the writing of this book.... Glen Ellen, California, Aug. 24 '09." The clippings laid on at the rear relate to Doctor Beadnell's work on evolution and dreams, and it is likely this research to which London is referring in the above inscription.
