Toronto Viking 1997 0670870315 / 9780670870318 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
101 pp, small 4to (10 1/4" H). Patterned endpapers. Profusely illustrated in colour with photographs, drawings, festive page borders. "A celebration of Christmas - Green Gables style! Inspired by Lucy Maud Montgomery's beloved classic 'Anne of Green Gables', (the authors) have gathered a fascinating selection of Christmas lore, crafts, cooking and decorating ideas, complete with easy-to-follow instructions and charmingly illustrated with step-by-step drawings and glorious colour photographs. Learn how to create a Green Gables gingerbread house or make decorations for your home, such as wreaths of roseberries or Matthew's sleigh-bell door chimes. Delight your friends and family with your own gifts for 'kindred spirits': perhaps a Green Gables tea cosy or Christmas ribbon cushion. You can also recreate the holiday finery that Anne and Diana would have loved, from Anne's beaded slippers to a velvet muff for those chilly winter nights. And, by following the recipes for festive delicacies such as 'Four Winds Roast Goose', 'Mrs. Lynde's Plum Pudding' and 'Marilla's Ginger Tea', you can enjoy the sort of traditional meal that would have been served at Green Gables, Anne's House of Dreams and Ingleside." Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top of spine and flap-folds - minor wrinkling at top edge, tiny dent on each hinge.

THE FRAGRANCE OF SWEET-GRASS:  L.M. MONTGOMERY'S HEROINES AND THE PURSUIT OF ROMANCE., Epperly, Elizabeth Rollins.  (Lucy Maud Montgomery.  L.M.)
2 Epperly, Elizabeth Rollins. (Lucy Maud Montgomery. L.M.) THE FRAGRANCE OF SWEET-GRASS: L.M. MONTGOMERY'S HEROINES AND THE PURSUIT OF ROMANCE.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1993 0802074618 / 9780802074614 First Paperback Edition. Soft Cover Very Good+ 
275 pp, 8vo (9" H). "Anne Shirley is the best known of a memorable group of heroines created by Lucy Maud Montgomery, a group that includes Emily Byrd Starr, Valancy Stirling, and Pat Gardiner. These characters are at the centre of Epperly's book, the first full-length critical study of all L.M. Montgomery's fiction. Epperly contends that Montgomery was a master of the romance genre, and through her use of literary allusions, repetitions, irony, and comic inversions she deftly manipulated the normal conventions of romance novels. By studying the fictional biographies of the heroines and their pursuit of romance, Epperly question the ways romance shapes what we consider valuable in our imaginings and experience. A book written for L.M. Montgomery fans and scholars." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, clean and bright.

RILLA OF INGLESIDE / RAINBOW VALLEY / THE BLUE CASTLE.  3 VOLUME SET IN SLIPCASE., Montgomery, L.M.  (Lucy Maud.)
6 Montgomery, L.M. (Lucy Maud.) RILLA OF INGLESIDE / RAINBOW VALLEY / THE BLUE CASTLE. 3 VOLUME SET IN SLIPCASE.
Toronto Seal Books / McClelland-Bantam Reprints Mass Market Paperbacks Fine Very Good- 
277 pp, 225 pp, 218 pp, 6 7/8" H - three volumes in slipcase. 'Rilla of Ingleside' (ISBN 07704421857, 1989) - "Anne's children were almost grown up, except for pretty, high-spirited Rilla. Rilla wasn't yet fifteen, and she was still looking forward to her first dance and her first kiss. But undreamed-of challenges awaited irrepressible Rilla when the happy world of Ingleside was endangered by a fearful far-off war. Rilla must join her courageous family in a dramatic struggle that would change her life and leave Rilla no longer a girl, but a proud woman." 'Rainbow Valley' (ISBN 0770422683, 1988) - "Anne's wonderful, lively children found a special place all their own. Rainbow Valley was the perfect spot to play, to dream and to make the most unusual friends, like the Merediths. They were two girls and two boys who had no mother. What they did have was a minister father who was looking for a wife but so far had found nothing but heartbreak. Between the minister courting a young spinster and the escapades of the restless children, the town was bubbling with scandal. But in the end, the warmth and laughter of Anne of Green Gables taught all an unforgettable lesson of love." 'The Blue Castle' (ISBN 0770423159, 1988) - "At twenty-nine, Valancy (Stirling) had never been in love and it seemed romance had completely passed her by. Her only consolation was the 'forbidden' books of John Foster and her daydreams of the Blue Castle. All her life Valancy lived on a quiet little street (in Bala, Ontario), in an ugly little house, never daring to contradict her overbearing mother and meddlesome aunt. Until the fateful day a letter came from Doctor Trent - and Valancy decided to throw caution to the wind once and for all. For the first time in her life, (she) said and did exactly what she wanted. Soon she discovered a world full of fine surprises and real adventure that she never knew could exist outside of her secret Blue Castle." Interiors - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exteriors - clean and bright. Slipcase has very light corner wear; three small edge bumps; a few very small stain marks and old very small label removal marks on top panel.

RILLA OF INGLESIDE., Montgomery, L.M.  (Lucy Maud.)
7 Montgomery, L.M. (Lucy Maud.) RILLA OF INGLESIDE.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1947 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good- Fair 
285 pp, 8vo (8" H) - red boards with gold lettering/banding on spine, blindstamped letter "C" in box on front board (for Cavendish Library). A continuation of the Anne of Green Gables series. "Rilla is the youngest of the Ingleside children, and combines charm and competence to an admirable degree. Rilla grew up in the era of the first World War, and is a symbol of its activity on the 'home front' - its feverish plans, its determined optimism, its courage, its steadfastness. Here is a lively and an accurate picture of a time that has passed - a time in which people lived, loved and suffered without the advantages of radio, aeroplane or the various improvements evidenced in the Atomic Age. 'Rilla of Ingleside', in addition to being a first-rate story, possesses a certain documentary value." Minor edge wear, light wrinkling on spine, two minor corner bumps, a few tiny edge dents, light browning on edges of text block. Dust jacket has chips at top/bottom of spine, edge tears and creasing, moderate edge wear, a few light water marks on spine, old tape repairs on inside of front hinge, large crease across front panel.
