I had found what I thought to be a first edition of this book earlier from Greg Williams. This copy is, like that, a pictorial black cloth octavo with a colored frontispiece and three other full-page colored illustrations. This copy states, however, as that one does not, First Edition with Louis Rhead's Pictures. Otherwise the two books seem identical. I comment at more length there. Here I will repeat that the book contains engravings of all sizes and shapes, including one (TH on 9) repeating a colored illustration (facing 6). The other colored illustrations besides GA on the cover and frontispiece are of BF facing 41 and FG 118. The Vain Jackdaw text (39) does not match in sense the colored illustration of the story facing 41. Typical of Rhead's work are the illustrations on 20 and 87. Note the mother with bandaged ear on 55. There is an AI at the front, followed by a list of illustrations.
