Today I received the "reprint", and much to my disgust, over 1/3 of the stories are omitted, including "Mutiny" (on of the best in the book!!) "Three Little Paddles" "Marooned" "Sailor's Hornpipe" "The Big Fish" "Sailor Yarn" "The Wicked, Wicked Pirate" (one of the best!! in the original) "Discovery" "Becalmed" "What Will You Be Billy Boy?" "Sea Shanty" "Seventeen Nephews" and "The Very Small Sailor"
No doubt some of these great stories have been censored because some shmuck of an editor judged them not politically correct enough (though I find not one of them offensive in any way), but others seem to have been expunged for absolutely no apparent reason! Now, I regret buying this phoney censored copy! It leaves out so many great stories and terrific artwork. It's not half as good as the original. And I suppose that since most people no longer have the original they have nothing to compare it to! Well I do!
We didn't have any problems with the print quailty of our copy-- looks fantastic!
If you've ever wanted a quick taste of a place, This is San Francisco is a great primer for any child.
