The Old-Fashioned Children's Storybook.
(Simon & SchusterWanderer Books, 1979)
Identical with an adjacent listing, except that the publisher and paper color have changed. Here the paper is cream-colored rather than white. See my comments there.

(F.G. Melcher, 1787)
Formerly in the Lenox Library, NY. See my comments on the source from which Thomas took his inspiration, Newbury's edition of 1744/67/1966/67. This book is clearly modeled on--but not a facsimile of--Newbury's work, as ...
