Edition: First Canadian issue
Philadelphia (Toronto): Penn Publishing Company (Copp, Clark), 1920. Octavo, blue cloth lettered in white. pp (2], 417. Light yellowing and foxing to front free endpaper, else a fine copy, no owner names. Dust jacket has slight foxing to white spine, dust soiling to rear panel, one inch tear and nick to front panel, mainly fine otherwise. A very nice copy of this novel about an American businessman whose wife tames him, set in Washington, D.C.. Rather nice colour illustration on front panel. This is a variant Canadian issue. Bears the Penn title page imprint but the Copp, Clark spine and jacket spine imprint. Also seen in grey cloth, with a Copp, Clark title leaf.
