1906 THE JUNGLE Upton Sinclair Hardcover Mylar Sleeve

Regular price $200.00

1906 hardcover edition of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. First published by Doubleday, Page and Company, in New York 1905. It has pictoral boards in very good condition. Book has been placed in a mylar sleeve. Interior pages show some aging.


Sinclair's intent by writing The Jungle was to expose the abusive labor conditions in the Chicago stockyards as a means of promoting socialism, however the American public was much more horrified by the novel's vivid depiction of unsanitary conditions in the slaughterhouses and meat-processing plants. This was most famous, influential, and enduring of all muckraking novels. If you are a collector of banned books, this is one you want on your shelf.
