Vintage Books: Friday's Find #302


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! I've been a lover of books for as long as I can remember and you'll find at least a few stacks of those I've collected in any room of my house. This week I scored several to share with you...

"Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think..." Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables


Who else is a fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne series? My girls watched the Anne of Green Gables videos countless times, and we still quote some of our favorite lines. For fun, I've included a few as captions on my photos today. I was thrilled to find several with publication dates of 1909, 1915, and 1936. Interestingly, you can see below that the copyright page in the Anne of Avonlea book includes her married name in the 1936 publication. AVAILABLE HERE!

  1. I've never found any old Anne hard cover books; I always buy the paperbacks and lots of kids books as I find they sell, albeit slowly, in my booth! I think American Girl books are today's answers to a lot of these old ones. I found an Annette (Funichello) book for myself this week--hurrah!

  4. I have Anne of Green Gables books that look just like those, I'll have to check the dates. They were either mine or my mother's, and my daughters loved them, too.
