Jack London bookplate, ca. 1910

Contributed by Cary Memorial Library in Wayne

Description

Jack London (1876-1916) was an American author who became successful with his exciting tales set during the Klondike Gold Rush, notably "Call of the Wild" and "White Fang." With its bold illustration of a wolf, London's bookplate brings to mind this writer's popular fiction.

Elizabeth Hyatt amassed a large bookplate collection in honor of famed opera singer Annie Louise Cary (1841-1921), who was born in Wayne, and for whom the present library is named.
