A pretty standard small book in good shape. The only difference between the two copies is the series listing on the back of the title page: the good copy from Brattle shows The Child's Garden of Charming Books, while the second copy shows The Winston Large-Type Classics For Little Folks. There are nice copies of the black-and-white illustrations on the end papers. Two colored illustrations (of the cock and jewel and of WC) and maybe a dozen black-and-whites, of which the best might be of the vain jackdaw on 24. The second copy lacks one endpaper. The third copy, from Alexandra Varga, is in relatively poor condition. I will keep the first two copies in the collection, but not the third, which follows the Winston series ID. T of C on v.
