SIGNED & dated to the title page by the late Mr. Berton. Very gently read, interior is clean and solid, light soiling to top edge. Bright, clean gilt titles to spine, tiny remainder dot and slight soiling to bottom edge of cream coloured boards. Clipped dust jacket is lightly bumped & rubbed, with a number of tiny tears to extremities, some "scuff" marks to rear panel. Now protected archival brodart jacket. One of the best books ever written about the Canadian-American War that determined the destiny of Canada as a nation. An outstanding example of the writing that made Berton one of the best and widely read non-fiction writers of his generation.
