My Early Life

Toronto, Thomas Nelson & Sons, 1930, This is the very scarce Canadian first edition. It consists of an unchanged Thornton Butterworth English first, wrapper in a modified dustwrapper that identifies the Canadian publisher and has a price of $4.50 printed on the spine. See Langworth p. 132-3 for details. Book is near fine. The spine every bit as bright and unfaded as the covers, gilt very bright against the coarse style cloth. The page edges are even and unspotted but off white. The dustwrapper is unclipped, faded on spine, only loss is small chip 8 x 3 mm at base of spine. Since only copies in dustwrappers can be identified as true Canadian firsts, and the survival rate of the English dustjackets seems well under 1%, you can see why this is a great rarity. I know of only 2 other copies in collections. This is the only copy I have ever seen offered. Don't miss out on this treasure. This was listed in my catalogue 102, so is not a newly discovered copy. (A37ac). Item #50098

Price: $18,000.00
