HIS OWN HOME TOWN
Edition: First Canadian issue
New York (Toronto): H.K. Fly (Copp Clark), 1917. Octavo, black pictorial cloth stamped in light green. pp 319 + frontispiece. Soft vertical crease to front free endpaper through p 21 (seems to be a manufacturing flaw), else a fine copy. Dust jacket has a one inch closed tear to front panel internally repair, else fine. A lovely copy of this novel of small town life in a mid-eastern US state. A playwright returns to his home town to take over the local newspaper and root out local corruption. Title page and jacket bear the Fly imprint, but spine bears the Copp Clark imprint. Basis for a 1918 short film starring Charles Ray.
