I bought this recently which is a book from 1929 which contains Goblin Feet.

The scant bibliographic information on the internet suggests it was published in London though it was printed in USA.

It lacks a dust-jacket so I can't verify the price.

The text differs slightly from Fifty Poems for Children, eg "gray" for "grey"

Other than that I can find no information about it other than some material about the editor.

My copy is a 25th Impression (identified as second printing 1989 within the book) and shows the £2.99 prce and the Roger Garland credit (with the Ted Nasmith cover).

Of course the 24th impression actually had a Roger Garland cover.

Aamzon Uk lists it as having 240 pages. If the poem is (as rumoured) 954 lines, that would be 30 - 50 pages. That suggests a lot of commentary, intro, etc.

I have had for a long time a 2nd impression 1930 of the Tolkien/Gordon Gawain and the Green Knight which has tissue guards and untrimmed pages.

Deagol's website states the 1st and 2nd impressions had untrimmed pages and the 3rd 1936 had the top edges trimmed.

I have just bought another copy of the 2nd impression (it was just a few quid) which has the top edges trimmed. It also lacks the tissue guards on the plates (which Deagol says some of the 1st impression also lacked).

The untrimmed copy has an owners date of 1931 while the top-trimmed one has an owners date of 1930 (which suggests to me they are pretty simultaneous variants).

Just wondering if anyone else's 2nd imp has top edges trimmed and no tissue guards,.
