Lower corner on front cover slightly bumped, inside front hinge just starting, otherwise a near fine and totally untouched copy of this great children's classic. Housed in a fleece-lined half black morocco clamshell case."In later life, Montgomery recalled writing in her journal the seed of an idea for a book: "Elderly couple apply to orphan asylum for boy. By mistake girl is sent them." Following the publication of Anne of Green Gables, Mark Twain wrote to congratulate Montgomery on the accidental adoptee, Anne Shirley -- "the dearest and most moving child since the immortal Alice". (Chris Loker. Grolier One Hundred Books Famous in Children's Literature, p. 204).Anne of Green Gables is a 1908 novel by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. Written for all ages, it has been considered a children's novel since the mid-twentieth century. It recounts the adventures of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan girl who is mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister who had intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm in Prince Edward Island. The novel recounts how Anne makes her way with the Cuthberts, in school, and within the town. Since publication, Anne of Green Gables has sold more than 50 million copies and has been translated into 20 languages. Numerous sequels were written by Montgomery, and since her death, another sequel has been published, as well as an authorized prequel. The original book is taught to students around the world. It has been adapted as film, made-for-television movies, and animated and live-action television series. Anne Shirley was played by Megan Follows in the 1985 Canadian produced movie. Plays and musicals have also been created, with productions annually in Canada since 1964 of the first musical production, which has toured in Canada, the United States, Europe and Japan.Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942) began writing about Anne as a serial for a Sunday school periodical in the spring of 1904. The character became so real that she eventually decided to develop the idea into a full novel. Much as would later with readers, Anne took hold of her creator, developing into a feisty, imaginative little being who demanded to be noticed and loved. The novel was completed in 1905, but was rejected by four major American publishing houses, and it was not until 1907 that Montgomery found a publisher. The best seller that would make the remote Canadian province of Prince Edward Island known around the globe was not to be published in Montgomery's native Canada until 1942 the year Montgomery died. Montgomery's mother died when she was two, and she was sent to live with her maternal grandparents in their farmhouse. In character she seems to have much resembled her heroine Anne. She became a teacher, but gave it up to look after her widowed grandmother. By age 21 she was earning her living in the thriving periodical market of turn-of-the-century North America. International.
