      • U.S. prices originally $0.50 cloth, $1.00 leather
      • U.K. prices originally 1s cloth, 2s leather
    • Numbered in advertisement by the publisher NY Times 1908-12-05 (prices $0.35 and $0.70, evidently all of the first 340 volumes).
    • General coverage of Everyman's Library suggests that this volume would comprise all of both collections A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys (1851) and Tanglewood Tales (1853).
    HathiTrust Digital Library provides full view of one undated copy without original cover. Stories span p[1]-404. There is a "Tanglewood Tales" title leaf in the middle book but "A Wonder Book" is displayed only as a heading for the first half of the Contents list, on the leaf before the stories begin. The original "Preface" to that first collection --closing "Lenox, July 15, 1851."-- precedes the Contents list. The first printed leaf alone represents the series. It names only J. M. Dent & Co. and states only British prices, 1s and 2s.
