Bouquets for Bama: “Before Adam”

Part of a posthumous salute to artist James Bama.

Before Adam, by Jack London (Bantam, 1970). According to Wikipedia, this story— “serialized in 1906 and 1907 in Everybody's Magazine”—tells of “a man who dreams he lives the life of an early hominid.” Something of a departure for an author best known for the Klondike Gold Rush-era yarns The Call of the Wild and White Fang. The back cover is here.
