Original maroon cloth on boards. First Canadian Edition, published October, 1912. Previous owner's large, lovely signature and date (1912). Rear hinge cracked and repaired. No other writing or damage. A surprising, tightly-written novel that begins with a young working woman in New York City applying to work as a companion and assistant to an elderly Scotchwoman in Quebec. And that's only the beginning ! Written as three books in one, and I found more twists and turns in the first 25 pp. than in many novels of today (Based on what those who read them say). 428 pp. View More...
