Flat SIGNED, inscribed & dated on the half-title page by the author."For____ and____ A truly Canadian story, With fond wishes, Catherine Ahearn, 15.82.12. P.S. You have a special Mum!" Like new, appears unread and not remaindered. Interior is clean, tight and absolutely immaculate. Two nearly invisible tiny (.5mm) dents to the front laminate wrap, thin stain-line running parallel to the spine for about 6" on the rear wrap otherwise a very collectable copy of this scarce title when signed. Stunning illustrations.
