"printed in colors" and "showy stiff wrappers, in colors" and No. 144 as a similar, but cheaper (20 cents) vol., printed "plain"; earlier catalogs list similar titles without item nos., while early 20th c. catalogs list No. 148 as "Mother Ryhmes," having "64 pages and many full colored pictures" and picture a different cover (the cover of no. 147 is shown with a similar cover to this copy).
