Montgomery Texts 5 October 2017 5 Comments Anna Childs 28 November 2014 at 10:03 PM I have this book with the original cover. It was purchased in the early ’50s and cost $2.50. It is a much loved treasure. Benjamin Lefebvre Post author 3 December 2014 at 1:54 PM Is your edition from L.C. Page or from a different company? I’m curious because Page licensed reprint editions of his Montgomery books to other publishers, which used the same cover and the same plates, even while his company continued to reprint them. Anna Childs 3 December 2014 at 4:30 PM Mine is L.C. Page & Co. Benjamin Lefebvre Post author 5 December 2014 at 2:01 PM Does it say which printing your copy is? You’ll find that on the copyright page near the front of the book. Montgomery’s later publishers, McClelland and Stewart (in Canada) and Frederick A. Stokes Company (in the USA) didn’t list printings or date them, so sometimes you have to make a wild guess, but Page always did. Anna Childs 5 December 2014 at 11:30 PM It says 53rd impression, 1948. All new and interesting to me. Comments are closed.
