8vo - 20 x 14 cm.; xi -  - 338 pp. Dark green cloth over boards with gilt lettering on spine and front board. Illustrated with 15 black and white plates (photographs), one of which is the frontis plus 2 maps. A sympathetic history of these Russian immigrants as they settle in Western Canada along with 3 appendices and a general index. The ninth and tenth chapters are centered on the Tolstoy controversy with Maude giving a considered rebuttal. The spine is quite worn with the back joint being decrepit and the head and tail being worn away. The board corners are bumped and worn. The binding is shaken and some fore edges were roughly opened with the small associated tears, not affecting any text though. There is some minor marginalia present in the form of check marks in the margin and quite honestly, there appears to be no rhyme or reason to these marks, at least none that I can see. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted.
