THE MEASURE OF THE RULE. Introduction by Lois K. MacKendrick

University of Toronto Press, 1973. Facsimile reprint from the 1907 original, with the addition of MacKendrick Introduction and a reprint (pp 3-27) of Barr's articles, "Literature in Canada", from the Nov. and Dec. 1899, issues of The Canadian Magazine. Orange cloth. Fine copy. Dust jacket has some wear to the bottom inch of the front flap fold, VG otherwise. "THE MEASURE OF THE RULE, making use of Barr's Toronto Normal School experiences in 1873, contains some trenchant material on the education of both students and teachers and on the social realities of Toronto boarding houses; there are also penetrating portraits of identifiable historical figures. But the latter part of the novel - treating the hero's career as a struggling artist in Paris and an eventual reunion with his beloved - is merely sentimental romance." - Toye, Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature. ; Octavo
