Gold Medal 643 - Canadian Printing

The second Gold Medal I Am Legend was also printed north of the border in Canada in 1956. Easily confused with the American second printing, it is quite easy to determine if you have a Canadian edition.

The clue on the front cover is the price - 35¢ instead of the 25¢ of the American edition.


The copyright page does not reference that the book is a second printing, however it does contain the line: PRINTED IN CANADA.


Finally, the back cover also includes the notation: LITHOGRAPHED IN CANADA.
