A rare version of this famous sale catalogue, issued with a specially printed cover and the Canadian portion only of the text. This copy includes a set of the very well-produced reprints of the 7 plates that correspond to this portion of the sale (Plates 7–11 plus 11A and 11B). The Wilson collection of Canadian coins, medals, and tokens was the finest ever assembled at the time of his death in 1924. The sale represents Raymond’s finest effort as a cataloguer. This offprint of the second day’s sale is rarely encountered, and is not listed in Adams, Gengerke or Davis.
