Again, I am surprised. I thought I had picked up a potentially better copy of a book I already have. Well, it is true that the interior of this book is exactly like that which I have listed under 1913?/1913? from these same two publishers. Like it, this may be a first printing of a first edition. What is the difference? This cover has E.P. Dutton & Co., New York where that copy has J.M. Dent & Sons, Ltd., London. The bottom of the spine has a corresponding difference. That makes five copies of this book, and of course it is included in a double volume with La Fontaine's fables by the same publishers in 1939. See my comments on the similar book for a sense of the similarities and dissimilarities with other copies.
