About This Item

HATFIELD BOOKS AND MEMORABILIA, a FIVE STAR SELLER, presents an EXTREMELY RARE Canadian bilingual edition of Longfellow's EVANGELINE in NEAR FINE condition. While penned in English, the story of EVANGELINE is Acadian (Nova Scotia), thus the dual English and French texts are most appropriate. Indeed, the private inscription in this softcover copy indicates it was purchased in 1963 in Nova Scotia. Printed and bound by Hazell Watson and Viney Ltd., Aylesbury and Slough, England, dimensions are 4 3/8" x 7 1/4", 126 pp., with light to moderate tanning on pages, some sunning to cover, but never read, owner inscription on first fep, overall condition = NEAR FINE. The cover is very light green mottled glossy paper w/ photo of statue and church front, particulars in turquoise. The French translation by Lemay has been used in a number of different editions dating back to 1865. Noted appraiser James Beattie, while remarking that no copies of this have been sold for 40 years, has attached a value of $225.00
