Dominick (dominickgrace) | 118 comments There are several issues with this book.

First, there are three separate entries for what I am positive is only one book/edition (only one book with this title is on Worldcat, as far as I can determine:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Second, the editor (technically, compiler) is named William C. Werthman, but all three of these list the last name as Wertham.

Third, the cover and title page also give author credit to W. Stewart MacNutt, for "continuity script"; not sure how that should be listed but presumably the dual authorship should be recognized.

Fourth, some of the publication information is missing:
Publisher: Brunswick Press
Page count: 216
Format: hardcover

Fifth, the book's title page includes a subtitle: A Pictorial History of the Confederation years 1867-1967.

Sixth, there is no cover image. Here is a link to my scan of my copy:

I usually do not add subtitles unless they are on the cover, because they do sometimes get removed, since they are not on the cover.

Thank you! Actually, I neglected to mention that the subtitle is on the cover as well as on the title page.
