"There is already a copy of this book in the collection, found in 1992. Now some 33 years later, I have found a copy in better condition with a dust jacket. It is hard to believe that the book was printed as early as 1910, but there is no indication of date in this book as there was none in that. Surely the dust-jacket, with a lively image of LM on the cover, will hold some hints. Its front flyleaf advertises "Classics," its back flyleaf advertises "Tanglewood Tales," and its back cover has many suggestions of "Books for Boys and Girls." This copy has blue cloth -- and maybe that other copy had blue cloth before sun turned it to green. As I wrote of that earlier find, these copies are identical in its printing with a dust-jacketed book that is much thinner, even though the two books have the same number of pages. Besides the two-word book title, the front cover has only a pair of stripes down its left side. These books are identical, right down to page numbers, with the edition by the World Syndicate Publishing Company with a few changes. The cover is different, the pages thinner, the index at the beginning is dropped, and the pre-title page is changed. The World Publishing Company edition has "Classics Series" on its cover, and this one does not! See also Goldsmith (1910?)."
