Anne of Windy Willows
1936, first edition of the fourth book in the Anne Shirley series
First edition, first impression. Hardback, bound in the original blue cloth with gilt titling to spine. 19 × 13cm, 296pp.
The fourth book in the Anne Shirley series. Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe are at last engaged, but still they are apart: for three years Gilbert will be away at medical school, while Anne has a new job as principal of Summerside High School. Absence couldn't make their hearts any fonder, though, and they share all their love and news in letters. At Summerside, Anne settles in happily, lodging at Windy Willows, home of two widows—Aunt Kate and Aunt Chatty—and their irrepressible housekeeper, Rebecca Dew. With firm friends like these beside her, she can face anyone—even the Pringles, the 'Royal Family' of Summerside, who waste no time in snubbing Anne and letting her know that she wasn't their choice for principal. Can Anne ever hope to win them over?
The book is in good, solid shape but with fading to the spine and some light scuff marks to the boards. Spotted foxing to title page but otherwise the pages are clean. The inner binding is secure.
