One can go to a rare book seller and pay big bucks for a copy of the original, but why? This reproduction is essentially identical to the ca. 1920 translation. The cover is durable, the pages are clean and of high quality paper; most important of all, the famous illustrations of Kay Nielsen are excellent. The stories themselves are fine, but best thought of as a bonus to the book itself.
