dc.description.abstractThis bigger new edition one year after the original publication (see my notes on the 1904 edition) is distinctive. It is 7 x 9 rather than 5 x 7½. It has only 233 pages, where the earlier edition had 348. But it uses the plates from the earlier edition. The book has reduced from some fifty stories to thirty-three. It makes up for this loss by supplying delightful marginal cartoons lacking in the original. I wager that there is a story here. Might the artist have been late for the first edition, or might the first edition have gone so well that the artist was recommissioned to produce cartoons in the same style? In any case, the full-page non-paginated illustrations listed on xi now are monotone rather than two or three colored, and though they follow the same patterns, they have been enlarged and some seem to have been redrawn for this edition. Contrast that facing 52 here with that facing 96 in the earlier edition, and compare that facing 58 here with that facing 102 there. There are fourteen such full-page monochrome illustrations in this book.en_US
