In the distinctive brown cloth boards with the paste-down of Anne on the front board in absolutely beautiful condition within triple rule stamped in blind; gilt titles on the front board and spine. Light to moderate wear to the extremities only. No internal markings of any kind.
Binding is extremely sound -- no cracking, not even starting. For a book that has normally been read again and again, this is a rare find. Title page undated; however the extensive Pitman catalogue at the end of the book lists only four publications by Montgomery: Anne of Green Gables (1908), Anne of Avonlea (1909), Kilmeny of the Orchard (1910), and The Story Girl (1911).
We conclude, therefore, that the book may be dated in 1911 with reasonable confidence. A beautiful collectible book in superior condition.
