Full black moroccan leather, stamped in gilt and with raised bands. A very handsome book. Inscribed by Beauchesne: "To James Lougheed, Liberal-Conservative leader of the Senate, with the compliments of the author, Arthur Beauchesne. House of Commons. January 8, 1923" Logheed held many important positions in the Canadian government, being "Leader of the Government in the Senate" 1911-21, and "Leader of the Opposition in the Senate" 1906-11 and 1922-25. Lougheed's name is stamped in gilt on the front cover. It is also signed (and was probably owned by) W.B. Willoughby. Willoughby was "Leader of the Opposition in the Senate" 1920-29 and "Leader of the Government in the Senate" 193--32. Signed also by two other owners, neither of whom were apparently politicians. No textural marks or notes. Front joint lightly cracked. One secondary label scuffed on spine. 4 1/2 x 7 inches. 313 pages, complete.
