The first Canadian edition

By Daniel J. Leab:

At a time when U. S publishers had not yet breached the Commonwealth market, the first Canadian edition (printed in the U. S.) seems to have resulted from an agreement which allowed the American printer to dump a cheaply made edition (probably for a book club) into a foreign (i. e., Canadian) market.
