ANNE OF AVONLEA. With Frontispiece and Cover in Colour by George Gibbs.

Edition: First UK issue

London: Sir Isaac Pitman. pp (iii)-viii, 367 + colour frontispiece with captioned tissue guard. Newly rebound by Keith Felton in half crimson crushed morocco with lilac boards and endpapers, all edges gilt, bound-in ribbon marker, spine with raised bands, black labels, gilt lettering and ornamentation. Bound without the ads at rear. A fine copy in a pretty binding. Made from sheets of the Boston: Page, September, 1909, first printing, this British first is very much scarcer than the American first. Her second novel, about as early as a serious collector can practically go with the British firsts. I have handled Anne of Green Gables many times in the American first printing but have only once in 35 years seen a copy of the British first. Would make a very nice present for a LMM fan.
