The book is awesome, but this posting is confusing. Are the illustrations the Syck originals, or have they been modified by E. Zeerger? It is a First Edition, But not THE first PUBLISHED edition, as that was in the 1950s. I have a copy of this, but the registration of the colors in the color plates was way off, making the illustrations difficult to view and appreciate, to put it mildly!!
