I've just had a really weird experience. I read all the Anne books (at least twice) as a child and remembered them pretty well, I thought. So in reading Anne of Ingleside (while knitting socks, I do promise I'm knitting too) this weekend I was really thrown when I came across several passages I swear I'd never seen before. I looked in the front (I have a New Canadian Library paperback) and it says "contains the complete text of the original hardback edition" ... so does that mean that the hardback edition I scrounged from a used bookstore in the late 1970s was abridged? And why on earth would any publisher have done such a thing to this book of all books? I need to know, as Davy might say.
