I believe I have the entire 14 books. Why is it though mine look different then the others I have seen?

    it all has to do with what year they were printed ... one year the tree is in the center, the other year its off to the side ...which is before 1916,.. yours are after ...or the other way around I forget whats the date on yours...lol

    There were many issues/editions of the Little Journeys Post EH's death First off Bert/EH II sold all the publishing rights to Wise and Company in NYC. BUT..he took back a contract for all printing as long as they published! That is what kept the Roycrofters,Inc. in Business throughout the 1930's. The first memorial edition was in 1916 in at least 3 different binding choices :buckram ,artcraft leaterette and real leather. Then they packaged all the other writings for the Selected writings series of 14 vols in 1922 and re-issued the Little Journeys again than again in 1928. I think that is all
