Title: The Pearl
Publisher: MacMillan Company of Canada (1958), Toronto
Publication Date: 1958
Book Condition: Near Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine
138 pages. Illustrated by Jose Clemente Orozco. A school edition, with notes and suggested questions for students. This is either the first or the second Canadian edition of The Pearl. Goldstone and Payne listed a 1947 Canadian edition as their A25c, but no copy was ever located. The Morrow catalog of the Valentine collection identified this school edition as the second Canadian edition, also never having found a book to match G&P A25c. The Holmes catalog makes the obvious leap, that this is actually the first Canadian edition (their A25g). What neither Morrow or the Holmeses realized is that the book went through at least two and perhaps more printings, identified by codes on the final text page. A near fine copy, with a slightly tanned spine. Code T.H.B. 46 on final text page. With a second copy, very good, with markings on the notes pages; code T.H.B. 06 on final text page. With a review slip tipped onto the front free endpaper. Review slip with 6-61 code, suggesting a 1961 printing. Bookseller Inventory # 108089
