In 1928 the publishers of My Bookhouse decided to expand the 6 volume set to 12 volumes, presumably to make it more child-friendly. Each volume was broken into two. "In The Nursery," for example, became "In The Nursery"; and "Story Time." In addition to the green and black faux leather bindings, a red binding was added. CLICK HERE for the RED COVER editions

The contents changed significantly when the set expanded to 12 volumes {Here is one example of the difference] The publishers also introduced a variant image for the end-papers. (See images to the right) Some 1928 volumes have the first, some the second. Listed below are some of the faux green leather volumes we have in our inventory.
