1 Cooper, Cynthia MAGNIFICENT ENTERTAINMENTS, Fancy Dress Balls of Canada's Governors General 1876-1898
Fredericton & Hull Goose Lane Editions & Canadian Museum of Civilization 1997 0-86492-187-X / 9780864921871 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Signed by Author
Tells the stories of four grand balls given between 1876 and 1898, detailing "the costumes, the nation-builders disguising entertainment as historical research, and the excitement of otherwise-forbidden sexual display." The number line on the copyright page ends in 2, but a quick call to the publisher confirms that this is the first (and only) edition of this work (for some unfathomable reason, Goose Lane number lines often begin with a 2 -- go figure). This copy inscribed and signed in a neat and legible hand by Cooper, on title page ("To the University of New Brunswick/Cynthia Cooper"). Uncommon signed. Charcoal cloth w/silver foil lettering to front cover/spine, 185 pages (including Notes, Bibliography, Index), illustrated. Moderate wear to corners/spine ends, in lightly scuffed dust jacket. 
Price: 100.00 USD
