Here is a second extra copy. Note the great inscription: Read this when you are feeling blue. Good advice!See my comments under the first edition in 1901. This book lists one publisher on the spine (Grosset and Dunlap) and another (R.H. Russell) on the title page! It has a simpler gray cover than does the 1901 edition--and lacks its wonderful reading donkey. Though someone has written First edition on the first page of the Amitin copy, it seems that this book cannot be called a first edition. This book uses the same plates as did the 1901 edition, but has slightly smaller side and much smaller bottom margins.
