CABBAGETOWN DIARY: a documentary
Second printing (first was in 1970). Card covers. Creases to covers, first few leaves, and upper corner of a couple leaves near middle of the book;' a number of pages have lines in margins, with a few words in the margin of one page; just a good copy. Inscribed by the author "27/3/72. To Joanne with many thanks, Juan Butler". The author's first novel (of three), a savage portrait of the Cabbagetown district of Toronto, then one of its poorest. Disappointed with the receiption of his third novel, and struggling with his mental health, Butler offed himself at age 38. A scarce signature.
