8vo - 23 x 17 cm.; (10) - 373 pp. From the dedication page: "This book is one of one hundred copies of Jakob's Ghost. These nineteen stories represent the years I spent in the north as a geophysical prospector. In part, this book was produced for my family and special friends, for the Christmas of 2015." From the back cover a comment on the photograph of the author at age 22 in Paris: ". . . This photograph was taken in the interval between the two years he (Byron) lived and worked as a geophysicist with the Swampy Cree in Northern Manitoba and just prior to his return to work in Keewatin. The 19 stories of Jakob's Ghost occured during this period." The first page has been removed and I have no idea what was on it. Minor wear to the externals and with a small, closed tear in the tail of the spine on the front cover. otherwise very clean with a sound and tight binding.
