Note:
  • Presumably published in Alida Sims Malkus The Spindle Imp and Other Tales of Maya Myth and Folk Lore (Harcourt, Brace, 1931), illustrated by Erick Berry; LCCN 31022896, OCLC 10687466 (Contents not found) (Mention of this story not found in a review or snippet view)
  • Newspaper reviews imply that The Spindle Imp contains a frame story; the work may be a "novel", an episodic novel in which many tales are recounted, or occur. Thus "The Goblin of the Pitcher" may be an excerpt rather than one of a collection. Similarly, one publisher advert states, "The Spindle Imp is a story of two children in the Yucatan, filled with the myths, folklore, and deep-forest atmosphere of that ancient civilization" (price $2.00) --NY Herald Tribune 1931-11-15 pJ24
