Almost identical with the Heritage Reprints edition. I presume now that this edition is actually a pre-war edition antedating that one. The chief distinguishing marks are a change from red here to brown there in the cover and the presence there of a disclaimer, on the page preceding the title page, about the government's wartime regulation to use less paper. The last full-page illustration (of the fighting cocks) is omitted from the larger-paged Heritage Press edition, and so this version is two pages shorter. One of the earliest versions of one of the most popular fable books of the century.
