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.
