Further Chronicles of Avonlea      

     Further Chronicles of Avonlea (1920) Published by the L.C. Page Company without Montgomery's consent, these stories were ones excluded from Chronicles of Avonlea in 1912. Montgomery brought an injunction against the book and sued for damages to her literary reputation. After eight and half years she won her case and was given the unsold copies of the book along with $18,000 in damages (she spent $15,000 in legal fees). Part of her case depended on the image on the cover of the book. Page had agreed originally to make no references to Anne in the book; however, he changed his mind and, along with other references, used a cover with an Anne-like, red-haired woman.
