    First edition (variant issue not noted in BAL, with "Published October, 1910" on copyright page and with signed collation denoting a first printing per BAL, but with three blank leaves at rear which -- with unsigned collation -- generally denotes a second printing -- suggesting that this is a possible intermediate state first edition; also, with three-line publisher imprint at foot of spine of binding, but one-line imprint on jacket). Octavo. [viii], 361, blank, 3 pages of ads, blank, 8 page of ads, three blank leaves. Frontispiece and seven inserted plates.

Stain affecting top margin of a few pages, with only one or two words of text affected. With the name "John Wilde" in ink on the first free endpaper. A beautiful copy in fine condition, in the rare dust jacket, here with darkened spine and considerable restoration, particularly to spine ends and folds.

    A novel about love and adventure in the life of a Yukon gold prospector nick-named "Burning Daylight."

    BAL 11918.
