Identical with the 1929 printing of the 1894 edition except for the gaudy coloring of the frontispiece (a red fox and yellow grass!), the thick cheap paper, and the notation on the back of the title page that there was a new edition in 1930. The book was the property of the Vermont Library Commission; might the plain cover have been made for or by them? Both Jacobs and Heighway remain delightful no matter how often I read them.
