About This Item

Boston: L. C. Page & Company, 1924. First edition of the third book in Smith's beloved Pollyanna series. Octavo, original publisher's cloth lettered in gilt, pictorial onlay to the front panel, illustrated by Weston Taylor. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. An exceptional example, scarce in the original dust jacket. Considered a classic of children's literature, Eleanor H. Porter's 1913 novel Pollyanna was succeeded by twelve Pollyanna sequels, known as the "Glad Books", most of them written by Elizabeth Borton or Harriet Lummis Smith. The series has been adapted for the stage and screen several times, some of the best known being the 1920 version starring Mary Pickford, and Disney's 1960 version starring child actress Hayley Mills, who won a special Oscar for the role.
