351 pp, 8vo (8 1/8" H) - brown boards with silver lettering/banding on spine, silver letter "C" in box on front board (for Cavendish Library). Copyright date is 1925, but this is a later printing. The first book in the 'Emily' trilogy. "Emily Starr left 'Maywood' and 'the house in the hollow' when her father died, and went to live with Aunt Elizabeth Murray at 'New Moon', Blair Water. 'New Moon' was named after the proud sailing vessel on which the Murrays had come to P.E.I. - as long ago as 1790. That was almost as good as living on a ship, and Emily liked the thought of that. Some of Aunt Elizabeth's iron-bound ideas on bringing up little girls Emily liked considerably less. But there were compensations - Aunt Laura, who was a great deal like Mother; Mr. Carpenter, who encouraged her to write the stories which she used to tell to Father; Cousin Jimmy, who bought her the 'Jimmy book' in which to write them. That made you well on the way to being an author, like Father had been. This story of the awakening and development of a sensitive and highly creative talent is told with charm, insight and sympathy." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, slight browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear/wrinkling, very light soiling on rear panel, tiny edge tear.
