This book is interiorly identical with another, bought in Santa Fe. It has a slightly smaller format, no label on its front cover, and lighter green cloth for its covers. As I mention of that other first U.S. edition, the book has witty rhyming texts. The tales may get a bit long in the telling. Many witty classical allusions are made and played with. Good stuff for the scholars and pundits around!
