Prose versions followed by Bates' long poetic versions surrounded with art. Might individual pieces have appeared individually in children's magazines? Childe Hassam is the best known illustrator, but his work here on TMCM is only okay. The best illustrations are of FS and FK. A valuable book, even though it is not to my taste. This edition has a different cover from the other printing of the same year, uses better paper, and gives the publisher's address and acknowledges the printer on the title page. Both show an error in the title of the prose version: The Lark and the Farmer should have a plural for the bird.
