New York: Macmillan, 1917. First edition, third printing. Hardcover. Small 8vo. Green cloth binding. 396 pp. Good condition; no dust jacket. Small inscrutable bookseller note in ink on front free endpaper. No other markings. Slight wear to covers along edges, fading to spine (see photos).

Sinclair turns his contemptuous gaze from the slaughterhouses of Chicago to an industrial environs even more sinful. In the coal-country outpost of Pedro, you'll discover a world bleaker, blacker and bloodier than any Jungle--if you manage to survive your first shift... You'd better! King Coal is a muckraking masterpiece.
