ANNE OF GREEN GABLES (Silver Anniversary Edition)

Boston: L.C. Page & Company, 1933 (1908). Sybil Tawse. Silver Anniversary Edition. Octavo, x, 396pp., followed by an 8-page list of fiction published by Page. On the copyright page, it is noted that this is the "sixty-eighth impression, October, 1933 [553rd thousand]". Technically true, but this edition, in its silver boards, was a new production of what was becoming then a classic. A notice at the top of the title page reads "Silver Anniversary Edition"; another mentions that there are "eight illustrations in full color from Paintings by Sybil Tawse". After the dedication page, there is a note from the publishers mentioning the book's popularity and how, to commemorate the book's 25th anniversary, they are issuing a beautifully illustrated gift book with eight plates, etc. As mentioned by Cecily Devereux in the 2004 Broadview Press scholarly edition of the book, Page, as publisher, was always alert for a marketing opportunity, hence this edition. Two pinhead -size faint brown spots on the title, and a slight bump to the bottom outside corner, small pale stain on the spine, else unmarked and fine in silver buckram stamped with title, author, and "Silver Anniversary Edition" on the front panel and spine. Top edge stained green, other edges untrimmed. Uncommon. Item #6408

Price: $300.00
