General Brock: The Makers of Canada

£350.00

Product description

The book is in fair condition. The binding is a cream cloth which, although worn, is intact and steady. The spine has had some sun damage and general wear to the point where the spine label has partially faded. However, there is an original spare spine label which has been tipped in on page 322. Also, the spine has been bumped slightly, and in the extreme upper of the spine there is some cracking which has exposed the headband, but the binding is still intact. The gilt top page edge is slightly darkened; the fore-edge and bottom are unclipped.

In the interior the binding is exposed due to a cracked hinge, and there is some minor foxing throughout--although it is mostly limited to the front and rear pastedowns and endpapers. On the half title page there is a personal inscription and dedication by the AUTHOR, Lady Edgar, to her son, David Keithock Edgar, dated 21st February 1905. This page also has a small piece missing. This book is a part of a de luxe edition which is limited to 400 copies, and this particular copy is unnumbered and addressed to her son. There is a portrait frontispiece of General Brock with a tissue guard. The text throughout the body of the book is clear and easily read.

This book is a historical biography on the Scottish Jacobite, General Brock, detailing his life and accomplishments in having a major role in the foundation of Canada. Lady Edgar was a mother of nine children, a historian, and a feminist. She was involved in numerous Toronto-based societies and contributed to the national image of Canada.
