Abstract
First published in 1909 by Hodder and Stoughton. This edition ©1981 by Hodder and Stoughton. Illustrations separately printed and pasted in with protective sheets. A much nicer edition than the Crown edition (1985). The pictures come alive. Other than the pictures and covers (inside and out), the editions are identical. I have three varying copies of this book. Copy A has marbled endpapers and standard page edges. I found it for $14 at MacIntyre & Moore in Cambridge, Jan., '89. Copy B is identical with the first except for red satin end-papers rather than marbled paper. I found it for $14 in August, '89. Copy C also has red satin cover backing but has a softer red leather cover and gilt-edged pages. Found for $18 at Powell's, Chicago, Sept. ,'92.
