TO YOU MR. CHIPS

Edition: First Canadian issue

Toronto: Musson, 1938. Orange cloth, spine lettered in black. Orange on white illustrated endpapers and text illustrations and ornaments by Bip Pares. 244 pp. Narrow bands of light sunning to spine tips, light shelf rubbing to lower edges of covers , corner creases to two leaves; else fine. Black and orange on cream Bip Pares jacket has two small chips to head of very lightly age-darkened, faintly damp spotted spine; light dust soiling to rear panel; scarcely noticable short tear near centre of spine fold; VG+ otherwise. The Canadian issue was obviously made from plates of the UK edition and was printed in Canada, apparently. The jacket bears a $1.25 flap price, has "The New Mr. Chips Book" at top of front panel, and there are quotes from Canadian and UK reviews to the rear panel and front flap of jacket. Also, the book has the orange embellishments to title page through page 11, but drops the orange vignettes, and the tailpiece entirely.; Octavo
