SIGNED and inscribed," To_____, with appreciation, truly George! (with the number 7, a word I'm unable to make out, followed by V under his name)" to the title page by Mr. Clarke. Stated first edition with number line to one. As new, appears unread, unclipped and not remaindered. Interior is crisp, clean and solid. Bright gilt titles to spine. Dustjacket is very lightly bumped to extremities with very minor shelfwear to show. Now protected in archival brodart jacket. An unforgettable fiction debut by the Governor General Award winning author, poet and Canadian treasure.
