DRED; a tale of the Great Dismal Swamp. Two volumes in one

Edition: First Toronto edition

Toronto: Maclear and Company, 1856. pp 212. vi, Appendix I. Newly rebound in quarter brown cloth, leather spine label, marbled boards. Starts with title leaf (lacking a half-title or blank?) Lacking at least one leaf of text at end (page vi of the Appendix ends in mid-sentence). Printed in double columns. Fore margin of title leaf professionally reinforced; several corner chips reinforced, with loss of a few words on pp 13-14 and pp v-vi of the Appendix; some soiling in text. Generally good-VG otherwise. A rare edition not noted by TPL or BAL. Correct first edition was London, 1856 (2 vols.) Boston edition also 1856, also in two volumes. This Canadian edition contains the author Preface found in the London edition, but not the Boston edition. There was also a Montreal, 1856, edition, made from the American text. I don't find any copies of this edition in Canadian libraries.
