John Anderson 1882-1883

John Anderson published the ten book series in two different formats. The title pages are not dated. The earlier books have the same gold gilt decoration in the center of the front cover as the latest (1880) Sheldon books. This makes sense when it is noted that John Anderson bought Sheldon's Rollo plates at auction in September, 1882.

The blue book with the ship on the cover was printed most likely in 1883.
