This small hardbound book is a curious melange. The introduction by Chesterton, taken without attribution from the 1912 edition featuring the art of Arthur Rackham, drops Chesterton's first paragraph. The translations are from that same edition but here without recognition: they are from V.S. Vernon Jones. The color of the illustrations from Winter, advertised on the cover, are surprisingly washed out. This is the sort of book that comes from the expiration of copyrights seventy-five years after publication of the work. The best thing about this book is its red cloth cover with gold lettering and a good illustration of the TMCM mice fleeing from the city dinner. There is a list of illustrations at the front of the book and an AI at the back.
