    Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. An early undated reprint, issued here by Grosset & Dunlap (the original first edition was published by Houghton, Mifflin in 1903). This copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Muriel Clennell. The author of the book gladly adds her name to that of the giver, Kate Douglas Wiggin, 1911", beneath which is the signature of a second person, "Auntie Flossie" - presumably 'the giver' in question. 8vo. 327pp. Green cloth, lettered and ruled in black at the backstrip with two decorations, and with a black-stamped order and decorated paper label pasted to the upper board. The top edge dust marked, and with a touch of rubbing to several extremities. The cloth lightly marked and dust soiled, with some fading to the decorations. Edges and free endpapers very slightly spotted, and with short place-marker creases to the tips of several leaves, and a little soiling and finger blemishing to occasional margins. A nice bright copy, considerably enhanced by the author's inscription. No dust wrapper. The binding of this Grosset & Dunlap issue is essentially identical to that of the first edition, with the exception of the differing imprint information at the base of the backstrip. There is no date on the title page, and the reverse of the title page shows the following text "Copyright 1903 by Kate Douglas Riggs. All Rights Registered. Published October 1903". The actual publication date was probably circa 1910. The text incorporates the two minor alterations from the original first printing on p.325 and p.327. Inscribed by Author(s).

    Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. A worn copy of the first printing of the Illustrated Holiday Edition. The covers are worn and the hinges are weak. Some pages are spotted and lightly soiled. The publisher's note describes the printing history of the title. It indicates that, in November 1909, Wiggin, with the help of Charlotte Thompson, had written a dramatization of the novel. The production starred Edith Taliaferro as Rebecca. This edition is illustrated with photographs taken of the play and the players. Wiggin inscribed the front endsheet with a quote from the last page of the book. In addition, the original owner annotated some of the plates with the names of the actors and obtained Taliaferro's signature on the 4th plate of the book. Please view photo(s) to determine exact condition. Signed by Author(s).

    Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. Bound in dark green cloth with light green lettering and decoration in three colors printed on the cloth. Corners bumped, some rubbing to hinges, but overall quite good condition. No date on the title page. Copyright page dated only October 1908. 327 pages. This appears to be a 4th printing, with 'at the side' on page 325 line 9 (it was 'to the side' in the first printing) and with 'October Sun'on page 327 line 13 (it was 'October noon' in the first printing). Sunnybrook Farm was a quick success, with more than 7 printings between October and Dec of 1903. This copy has a 5 line quote from the book written out in Wiggin's own hand on the front endpaper, and signed by her beneath. No date on the signature - but her hand is distinctive and this is a nice clear example of her signature. Signed by Author(s).

    327 pp. 8vo, publisher's pictorial cloth in dust jacket. First reprint edition. Jacket missing top two inches of spine, with other large chips; spine sinned where exposed. A presentation copy associated with the theatrical version of the novel.

Further signed by ten of the cast members, with their roles, including Edith Taliaferro who played Rebecca, and for whom Wiggin composed an epilogue at the close of the New York run. Laid in is Smedley's copy of a letter from Wiggin dated Sat. 1913, expressing farewell and thanks.
