This book is exactly identifical with another done by Hampster Books, for which I have guessed the same year of 1935. Let me note the differences. Printed in Czechoslovakia was placed there underneath the frontispiece picturing LM; here it is on the bottom of the last page, 77. The typesetting of the page numbers changes from one book to the other; this edition's numbers and surrounding brackets are taller. This edition has no page number for 76; the Hampster edition has a number. The same pattern is true on 62. My, the curiosities one discovers when one looks! I wrote the following about the Hampster edition. This book is perhaps more historically than artistically interesting. The Cheating Fortune-Teller is new to me. The wife is the real culprit in GGE. The Comedian and the Countryman might be the best for both story and illustrations.
