The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse

I was delighted to find an early (first?) edition of this little book, even if it is in poor condition. The spine is disintegrating; one piece of it I have placed inside the cover. Examination of the book at home has brought a new surprise. About one third of the pages are not printed! Here are the missing pages: 12-13, 18-19, 24-25, 30-31, 36-37, 42-43, 48-49, 54-55, 60-61, 66-67, 72-73, 78-79, 82-83. Those who have read these figures carefully will note that there are always four good pages between sets of unprinted pages up until the last interval, which allows for only two good pages. There is some mystery of printing at work here! What is here, though it is battered and botched, is fun. See my comments under 1918/87.
