Title: Don't Fall Off the Rocking Horse: An Autobiography.
Description: Toronto, McClelland & Stewart. 1978, First Edition. (ISBN: 0771031815) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 199 pp, 9 1/4" H. Signed by author on title page (signature only). "Lawrence Freiman's reminiscences encompass the world of his grandfather - a Canadian adventurer who fought in the American Civil War - and focus on the span of his own life, including his childhood in Ottawa, his formative years, his involvement in education, the arts and social legislation, in Zionism, and in Freiman's, the family retailing business, which he expanded into a large and successful company. Here is a person who has made it as few have, and, in the course of making it, he has not only led a rich, varied and exciting life, but has also contributed much to Canadian society. His story is one of ups and downs, of risks, losses and victories, of the growth of a family and the progress of Zionism, of Canada and her capital, of the gradual shifts of time, of the rocking horse motion of life and the excitement of not falling off." A tiny light stain at bottom of title page and opposite page - also a very tiny stain at top edge of contents page; tiny tear and creases (archivally taped) at top edge of first illustration page; light to moderate edge wear on boards; light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine; three small corner bumps on boards; light lean to spine.
