Little Journeys Various Dates

The "Little Journeys" series have been printed in a multitude of styles, bindings and states of illumination. The measurements of the book style above varies from 6 15/16" x  4 1/2" to 8 1/8" x 6". The dates on these run from 1900 to 1905. The smaller of the bindings tend to be Putnam and Sons i.e. Knickerbocker Press and the larger Roycroft Press. The states of illumination are a hodge podge. It does not appear to matter what the date stated is, as some books from 1901 are not illuminated but others from 1900 and 1905 are illuminated. There is no consistency. Some of the volumes are listed as being produced in an edition of 947 but have no limitation number assigned and are illuminated and signed by illuminator. Others are signed for Hubbard and have no illumination but do have a limitation number. There is about every conceivable combination. I have 20 of these volumes and I find them fascinating.
