Description:
Toronto: Mcclelland & Stewart, 1963 This Is A Very Nice Copy Inscribed And Dated Nov 6, 1970 By Pierre Berton. I Believe It To Be From The 1963 Edition. It Has Clean Green Boards With Just A Little Rubbing To The Extremities. There Is A Darker Green Vignette On The Front Board And The Spine Titling Is In Orange And Dark Green. It Is A Mcclelland & Stewart 8Vo Stating Copyright, Canada, 1961 And Is Illustrated By William Winter With147-156 Pages. The Seven Titles By Pierre Berton Listed On The Copyright Page Were All Published By 1961 Or Earlier. All That Remains Of The Dust Jacket Is The Back Panel, Showing Pierre And Janet Berton And Six Children On A Boat. The Sixth, An Infant, I Suspect Is Peggy Ann, Who Was Born In 1963 And Presumably Did Not Exist In 1961, When Og, Describing The Five Eldest Berton Children, Was Written.
