Apparently a work-over of Saalfield's 1933 similarly oversized volume of the same name. The cover illustration is changed, as are the frontispiece and all the colored illustrations, which are now done by Madsen instead of Peat. The story-pagination is exactly the same except in two places: Three Billy Goats Gruff and Three Little Kittens, They Lost Their Mittens are exchanged, and the three stories beginning at 80 are rearranged, including TMCM. TMCM is now one of the illustrations (86). The paper now is thinner. The spine is weak and some pages (e.g., the list-of-illustrations page and 18) are torn. Many illustrations are at the same place and have the same subject but are now by Madsen; others are at the same place but have different subjects. See the earlier edition for a list of the five fables involved.
