"After only a few of that first state were issued, some long-gone and unimaginative art editor must have ordered a change to a galloping horse running to catch his bunch and having nothing to do with the immediate text. Maybe he couldn't read! ... The tent picture is never to be seen again! That first state is very rare" (Frazier, p 64). The first of the three Uncle Bill Books.
