SIGNED and inscribed, "To _____ with regards, Farley Mowat '83" on a paper sticker, to the 2nd pastedown. Gently read, unclipped & not remaindered. Stated first US edition. Pencil price erasures and light indents to half-title page. Few small spots of foxing throughout. Tan boards show some soiling. Dustjacket has a handful of tears and chips to extremities with some foxing and soiling to show. The dustjacket is from the Canadian edition. Now protected in brodart jacket. An amazing sea story from our much missed Canadian legend.
