      This book was originally published with 12 color illustrations tipped into the book in various places. The fact that your copy was published without the color plates means that it was published after 1935. I do not have my reference book near me at this time, but as I remember any copies with color plates are considered to be First editions. The book probably went through several printings with color plates, but since no differences are found between these printings they (all color plate copies) are all considered to be First edition books. Only the presence of the dust jacket might help to give a better determination.
