dc.description.abstractThis book's closest relative is the edition by the same name in 1880 from the American Book Exchange. See my comments there. Its other close relative is the Arlington Edition by Hurst which I have listed under 1899?. With the former it shares the smaller, thinner format. It even has, like it, a slip-sheet between the frontispiece and the title-page. This edition has a lively embossed image on its blue-green cover of a stork eating a frog. Inscribed in (18?) '87. The placement of the illustrations seems umimportant in these editions. What the List of Illustrations (7-8) shows is not where one finds the illustrations but where one finds the stories that go with the illustrations. The Finis promised in the list is lacking. The Blind Man and the Lame Man shows up as the frontispiece here. The engravings for FK (53) and CP (127) occur twice. If you keep looking under rocks like this book, you find a great deal!en_US
