dc.description.abstractI have two copies of this blue-covered book, the first a gift of David Dreis in 1987and the second purchased through Ebay. The latter has a surprising dj that features a pirate, the Mad Hatter, Alice, and others--but nothing apparently dealing with fables! This is an almost identical but poorer replica of the Goldsmith edition. The paper is cheaper, and there is less ink on the illustrations. There are no advertisements at the end. If you line up Goldsmith as #1, this World Syndicate edition as #2, and World Publishing as #3, you can watch printing history. #1 prints by mistake on the back of 35's illustration and leaves 34 blank, but incorrectly lists 34 in the list of illustrations. #2 prints correctly but in my Dreis copy still has not changed the list of illustrations. My Childress copy of #2 corrects the list of illustrations. Then #3 does it right. I only hope that history did not actually reverse this nice theoretical order that I have created! Ironically, I received this book (for baptizing Joseph Dreis) a week after receiving the Goldsmith edition from Elizabeth Willems.en_US
