"/*Imposition*///is one of the fundamental steps in the pre-press 
printing process. It consists of the arrangement of the printed 
product’s pages on the printer’s sheet, in order to obtain faster 
printing, simplify binding and reduce paper waste. Correct imposition 
minimizes printing time by maximizing the number of pages per 
impression, reducing cost of press time and materials. To achieve this, 
the printed sheet must be filled as fully as possible."

Adobe Reader DC can do page imposition for you; you don't need 
pdfpages.  Print / Page Size & Handling / Multiple / 4.  The diagonal 
[COPY] is watermarked into each page by Canon; I have successfully 
removed such things in the past, and there are lots of commercial web 
sites offering this as a service, but if you are really worried about it 
you can probably order an original manual from Canon-US which would, of 
course, be watermark-free.
