Anne of Windy Poplars, MONTGOMERY, L M
264 MONTGOMERY, L M Anne of Windy Poplars
Toronto McClelland and Stewart 1936 First Edition, Early Issue Hardcover Near Fine/Good 301 pp. 8VO 
A very nice copy of the penultimate Anne book in the very scarce jacket, showing a rather dreamy Anne holding a book and lounging on a window seat. First edition, early issue. Lists ten titles on the rear jacket panel ending with Pat of Silver Bush. Gift inscription dated 1939, otherwise book is in near fine condition, bright and unworn. The jacket is bright but has several tears of note including a 4 diagonal across the front panel. 1 1/2 near upper front flap fold and a 3 tear along lower front flap fold. All are unrestored and the jacket is now protected in mylar. There is a small loss on the front panel top edge and some mild erosion along the head ot the spine. The book matches all points called for in Lechowick except for the stain on the top edge. The jacket is congruent with all points. Lechowic p. 116. Spadoni Donnelly #1180, Russell 559.

Jane of Lantern Hill, MONTGOMERY, L M
265 MONTGOMERY, L M Jane of Lantern Hill
Toronto McClelland and Stewart 1937 Early Printing Hardcover VG/VG 297 pp. 8VO 
Early printing of this late L M Monrgomery novel. Lacking the colour frontis, the book lettering is in black rather than gold and there is no stain on the top edge. Otherwise the book is identical to the first printing except that the date is mistakenly printed as 1936 on the copyright page. This error is mentioned in both Lechowick and Spadoni-Donnelly and probably dates the book to the early forties, further confirmed by a gift inscription dated 1943. The unclipped jacket is identical to the first issue. It is edgeworn, rubbed along the folds and has minor losses at spine extremities. Lechowick p. 120, Spadoni-Donnelly 1203, Russell 587,589.

Never Cry Wolf, Mowat, Farley
277 Mowat, Farley Never Cry Wolf
Toronto McClelland and Stewart 1963 First Edition Hardcover NF/VG/NF 247 pp. 8VO 1
First edition of Mowat's best known book with both the suppressed jacket with the amiable wolf and the author photo replacement. In a personal conversation with Farley at a signing he explained that the publisher was worried about possible consequences if a reader cozied up to a wolf in the fashion depicted on the cover and so issued another more sober jacket. He himself liked the original jacket. The book is in fine but for some marks on the bottom edge condition and both jackets are bright and nearly unworn with mild edgewear on the bottom edge. A handsome copy
