FIRST CANADIAN EDITION, FIRST ISSUE
This edition was produced from American first edition plates and bound in a similar but not identical style to the English first edition. The coarser, more ochre-color cloth retains the armored train cover art motif of the English edition, but with a red fleur-de-lis on the spine instead of crossed flags.
SCARCER THAN EITHER THE ENGLISH OR AMERICAN FIRST EDITION
