This book may be notable mostly for its unusual shape and for the variation of colored and black-and-white illustrations, which are uninspired. Includes TMCM, MM, BW, FC, TH, LM, and GGE. There are two other versions of this book in the collection. This edition, perhaps later than one found at Midway in November, 1994, does not mention Harper on the cover, places Harper on the title-page not in New York and London but rather in New York and Evanston, and mentions Western Printing and Lithographing on the verso of its title-page. This version also adds plain pages before the title-page and illustrated interior of a house with a book and ball and windows looking out on children reading and playing. One of these illustration papers here is torn.
