THE WANDERER'S NECKLACE. With Four Illustrations by A.C. Michael.
Edition: First printing
London: Cassell, 1914. Presumed Canadian issue. Octavo. Light brown cloth lettered and ruled to spine in gilt, front cover gilt lettered with central gilt monogram against a dark green background, border in blind. (xii), 328 pp. Colour frontispiece with tissue guard and three sepia toned plates inserted. Spine sunned with almost all the gilt flaked away; light soiling to rear covers; free endpapers quite browned from binding; cracked front inner hinge neatly repaired; some foxing in text and to page edges; a Good-VG sound copy otherwise. This binding varies from that described by Whatmore F41 and Allen 62, and I believe that this binding, with the monogram against a green background, was for the Canadian market. I have had other Cassell Haggards in this style of binding, also not described in Whatmore or Allen, and all bought here in Canada. The present copy has a Montreal bookseller's ticket at rear.
