"British, American and Canadian Editions"--answer

Several checker books were published both in Great Britain and in America, i.e. the British Draughts Player. "Checker Trivia question of the Day"? Name one book that was not only published in Great Britain and America, but there was also a Canadian edition of it published. (Cont.)

My good friend Tom Wiswell sold me my very first checker book many years ago. It of course was a Lees' Guide and it is still my favorite yet today. Being a checker bibliomaniac I was always looking for other editions and printings of it. In 2004 we gave our library away . At that time the library contained over 500 Lees' Guides representing way over 100 different editions and printings--many were British, others were American and a few were Canadian. One day the thought came to me that Great Britain once owned Canada, so I wondered if there were any Canadian editions of Lees' Guide. After searching for them for sometime I came up with 6 different Canadian editions. (Cont.)
