901 pp + List of Subscribers, 8 3/4" H. Reddish brown bevelled boards with gilt lettering & decoration on spine and front board, black borders on front board, blind-stamped decoration on rear board. Two b&w portrait frontispieces (Lord Dufferin/Lady Dufferin) with tissue guard between. "The slow and steady development of the principles of Responsible Government in Canada, under Lords Durham, Sydenham, Metcalfe, Elgin, Monck, and Lisgar, and the unswerving devotedness of Lord Dufferin to those principles, should make an historical account of his Administration acceptable to all interested in them. It is chiefly with a view to point out this gradual development, and to show the means used by Lord Dufferin in the process, that this work has been projected. No Canadian statesman can hereafter pretend to even a fair knowledge of his duties or responsibilities without an intimate acquaintance with the details of Lord Dufferin's Administration; - and no inhabitant of Canada can with even tolerable clearness understand the history of his country in the absence of a familiarity with its progress since the system of Responsible Government was established." From the Preface. Previous owner's name, date and place in pencil on front pastedown, light foxing mark at the bottom of the frontispieces - more on the tissue guard, tiny crease at top corner of pages 97 to 108, very light browning to pages, a few small light stains on front free endpaper, browning to edges of text block with two very small stains on top of text block light edge wear to boards - moderate at corners and at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing and a few tiny stains on boards.
