429 pages, plus 8 pages of ads at rear. Thirty Eighth Impression; May, 1914. A remarkable survival of this exceedingly scarce 1914 jacket that has done great service to the boards. Considerable chipping to jacket; now protected in removeable brodart archival sleeve. Apart from the chipping the jacket is whole and in one piece with no splitting at flaps. The verso of jacket [now loosely covered by the blank white of brodart backing] lists many titles for sale "more than 400" but no L.M. Montgomery volumes. This is not a later-issue jacket: check the G&D publication dates for the "Recent Issues" on rear. Presumed first Grosset edition. The boards, spine, and paper insert on front are in superb condition. Foxing (brown spots from acidic reaction to jacket flaps and pictorial plates) is present on the frontispiece and first 2 leaves, on the rear endpaper, and on the leaves immediately adjacent to the 3 pictorial plates. Small marginal stain at lower right of pages 111-130, 159, and a small brown dot from fore-edge from page 257-263. In fact, a very clean interior. Front blank endpaper is lacking. Former owners' name to half title in ink, and (hidden by jacket flap) in pencil to front pastedown.
