RILLA OF INGLESIDE.

by Montgomery, L.M. (Lucy Maud.)

Condition: Very Good-/Fair


Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1947. 285 pp, 8vo (8" H) - red boards with gold lettering/banding on spine, blindstamped letter "C" in box on front board (for Cavendish Library). A continuation of the Anne of Green Gables series. "Rilla is the youngest of the Ingleside children, and combines charm and competence to an admirable degree. Rilla grew up in the era of the first World War, and is a symbol of its activity on the 'home front' - its feverish plans, its determined optimism, its courage, its steadfastness. Here is a lively and an accurate picture of a time that has passed - a time in which people lived, loved and suffered without the advantages of radio, aeroplane or the various improvements evidenced in the Atomic Age. 'Rilla of Ingleside', in addition to being a first-rate story, possesses a certain documentary value." Minor edge wear, light wrinkling on spine, two minor corner bumps, a few tiny edge dents, light browning on edges of text block. Dust jacket has chips at top/bottom of spine, edge tears and creasing, moderate edge wear, a few light water marks on spine, old tape repairs on inside of front hinge, large crease across front panel.. Reprint. Hard Cover. Very Good-/Fair.

Rilla of Ingleside (1921) is the final book in the Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery, but was the sixth of the eight "Anne" novels she wrote. This book draws the focus back onto a single character, Anne and Gilbert's youngest daughter Bertha Marilla "Rilla" Blythe.
