SIGNED without inscription by Mr. MacEwan to the title page. Stated First Printing 1966. Very gently read, unclipped and not remaindered. Interior is clean and unmarked. Corners are sharp and square. Bright gilt titles to spine and front board. Unclipped dustjacket is lightly bumped to extremities, light moisture “crinkle” to top edge, light soiling and faint reddish soiling to rear wrap. Written to the ffep is an interesting list, “Grant’s choice of 10 heroes to compare with 10 nominated by his students…” presumably by one of Mr. MacEwan’s students. For example, No. 10 is Paul Bunyan; Mr. MacEwan’s choice is legendary Alberta cowboy John Ware. “John Ware, only man who could blow out a light and be in bed before it is dark.” (I don’t believe this list on the ffep is written in MacEwan’s hand). Dr. MacEwan was a noted writer, historian and educator. He served as the Lieutenant-Governor of Alberta and MacEwan University bears his name. Now protected in archival brodart jacket.
