30 Curwood (James Oliver) The River's End. A New Story of God's Country. Illustrated by Dean Cornwell.

Toronto: Copp Clark, (1922). Early Canadian edition. Red cloth lettered in black. Frontispiece only; no other plates. A very nice, clean copy in a chipped pictorial dust jacket, some chips from spine ends and corners, a long repaired tear across the front panel, and internal tape reinforcement. This pictorial jacket, which pictures a Mountie, is adapted from the 1919 American edition published by Cosmopolitan. The publishers have changed the imprint at the base of the spine, overprinted the price on the spine, and replaced the printing statement on the front cover (i.e. "75th Thousand") with the statement MADE IN CANADA. Printed at the Copp Clark press, this is an entirely Canadian production. A better than usual copy.
