Abstract
This is another edition of a book I have listed under 1920? I presume that it is a later edition that has added the new material on 417-512. It has the same cover and endpapers. It adds a dust jacket, frontispiece, and title-page, as well as pages 415-16, all of which are missing in the other copy. This copy also has the colored illustration of TH on 352 missing in the other copy. As I mention there, 325-334 contain fourteen fables, ten of them illustrated by Rountree with somewhat indistinct black-and-white designs. The best of the black-and-white illustrations here are the pair for TMCM on 330-1. I still wonder if that is a wolf with the lamb on 329. People good with numbers will notice that this copy cost me fifteen times as much as that other copy! I am happy to have a better exemplar with which to illustrate this book's family, if not the book itself.
