Anne of Green Gables First Edition Sets A Record

A first edition of the 1908 classic Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery has fetched $37,500 at an auction in New York City.  See the Montreal Gazette for details.

Although this “record” is for a “classic children’s novel”.   It was not the intent of the author to write a children’s novel so perhaps we can take this record with a grain of salt.
