Five of the six vols state 'Nister & Co. No. 1396. Designed in England, Printed in Germany'; the sixth, 'A Birthday Present' states 'London, Ernest Nister; New York, E. P. Dutton & Co; .Printed in Bavaria' and has floral endpapers where the others have plain. 'A Birthday Present' is also the cleanest and brightest of the six vols, the others having varying degrees of wear and soiling to wraps, browned pages and rusting staples. No inscriptions to any of the books. The colour illustration to front of'The Cat's Concert' looks like the work of Louis Wain. .
