The Story of the Malakand Field Force (Canadian 1st)

Copp Clark Co., Toronto, 1898, Similar in appearance to the British Colonial edition, Cohen tells us that 250 sets of the Colonial sheets were used, with a cancel title page added. The spine of the book also is stamped in gilt with Copp Clark at its base. The frontis plate has a tissue guard, but neither of the folding maps do. No errata slip. This is a major obstacle to those assembling a collection of UK, US, and Canadian firsts of Churchill's works. This is the only copy I have seen or heard of in 25 years. Cohen lists only institutional copies and at the time he did not have one himself. This copy has the usual tanned spine, but the gilt is bright, covers clean and attractive, page edges look good with no foxing, two bookplates on endpapers. (A1). Item #5178

Price: $15,000.00
