A Short History of the English People (Green's History of England)
Toronto, Copp Clark. 1888, New Revised. Cloth, 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾ tall. Textbook, Orangey-brown boards with black impressed titles and decoration are in very good condition, showing light to moderate rubbing, bumping and shelfwear especially at top and bottom of spine. The top edge shows light stains as from moisture, the bottom edge has one darker stain, none of the stains penetrates to the text block. Both front and rear hinges are weakened, having splits in the endpapers, although the webbing still holds the boards. Most of the front free endpaper has been removed. The interior is tight and unmarked, except in a few of the later chapters there are underlinings and annotations in pencil. There is also a penciled sentence on the rear free endpaper. There are also a few creased corners. Book does not show foxing, mold or mildew. Titles on the front board state "Authorized by the Education Department of Ontario" and "Price $1.50". All six maps, five of which are in color, are present. 1888, which seller has listed as year of publication, is based on statement on back of title page: "Entered according to Act of the Parliament of Canada, in the year one thousand eight hundred and eighty-eight, by MACMILLAN & CO. in the Office of the Minister of Agriculture." It is possible that this statement references an earlier edition, and therefore, although there are no other dates in evidence, the seller cannot be certain that the book was not published later than 1888.
