Folk-Lore and Fable: Aesop, Grimm, Anderson.
(P. F. Collier & Son Company, 1909)
An unspectacular selection of Joseph Jacobs' Aesopic fables claims the first 35 pages or so of this collection. It is, as far as I can see, valuable only as testimony to Aesop's popularity. No illustrations. T of C at ...

Fraulein Bo-Peepen and More Tales Mein Grossfader Told.
(Rinehart and Company, 1953)
Here is another occasion on which I thought I was getting another copy of a book I already had. Surprise! This is a copy of the original Rinehart publication. Holt, Rinehart, and Winston was created in 1960. As I wrote ...

All through Storyland: Stories and Verse for Boys and Girls

Here is an individual volume found in a random hunt in a second-hand store. Excellent condition. Though the publisher has changed, there seems to be little change from the latest edition I had of this book from 1931. ...
