 Mister Dog, The Dog Who Belonged to Himself

First Edition

Little Golden Book #128, 

Published by Simon & Schuster, New York ,1952, 

Illustrated by Garth Williams, 

It has 28 pages,  The first  edition was printed with this back. Showing a list of LGBs available. The last on the list being D30 Pluto Pub Goes to Sea. 4 more pages than the 1980 reprint , this edition has additional text and illustrations. I personally think it's a better story because the additional text and pictures develop the relationship between the boy and Crispian, showing their affection for each other.

 

 The second printing has this on the back and a "B" in the binding margin of the last page, as well as 128 • 25 on the front upper right hand corner. Published by Simon & Schuster, New York ,1952, Illustrated by Garth Williams,
