Interesting..books 1-3 were rerecorded electrically by Lewis James in 1928, 
with the same artwork (at least on Book 3). I have the book, not the disc..I 
also have the electrical remake of Book 1, with a small bite (hey, biting the 
disc was probably less harmful to the little brat than eating the lead paint 
off the side of his crib). Electrical remakes for volumes 1-3 are 216525/7 and 
I believe those were all issued in the US. Volume 4, illustrated, is one of the 
last Canadian acousticals. Don't know if there was a remake.
