The Makers of Canada
Toronto, Morang & Co. Limited, 1905 to 1912. Hardcover.Thick 8vo,,,Between 1905 and 1912, this set was issued in a variety of bindings: cloth, half-leather, and full leather; and in editions of eleven or 21 volumes. The preferred presentation is the 'University Edition', bound in full grained leather, with the top edge gilt, and the endpapers marbled. That is the edition we offer here. It was issued as a set of eleven volumes: ten volumes written by various authors (usually two to a volume), with a supplementary eleventh volume, containing a dictionary and index. The binding of each volume is tight, and there are no broken hinges or joints, although the top of volume VII is pulled at the left joint, and there is wear to the tips. There is some staining to the leading edge of the front boards of some of the volumes, and volumes I, II, III and VII shows an old tide mark to the leading (marginal) edge of about 100 pages (each volume contains over 500 pages). The other volumes are internally clean and unmarked. On the shelf, this set presents a most handsome appearance, and it may be handled - and read - without trepidation. In pricing it, we have taken the flaws into account. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations.
