Good. No Jacket as Issued. Book. 12mo-over 6¾"-7¾" tall. Pp: [x], 17-382, [7, testimonials], [1, blank]. Bound red cloth, titled in gilt to top board and to spine. Boards, soiled and spine quite faded. Moderate wear to edges and extremities. Despite the paper of the rear hinge being cracked the book is quite tight and with only a modicum of sporadic soiling. The first twenty leaves give the feeling of having had a wet pitcher placed on the front free endpaper as there is a four-inch diameter area of cockling. No published date but the latest testimonial is dated 1870; also there is no definitive indication that this is the first Canadian edition, however it does seem to be a fairly reasonable assumption, regardless it is quite scarce in any Canadian edition.
