Identical, except for the addition of four color plates by Charles Robinson (1870-1937), each inserted facing page with related rhyme. No longer “Julia Greene, colored plates” on title page.

Between 1917 and 1928, a few rhymes were dropped because they contained obviously objectionable material. Because of these changes (and the resultant changed illustrations), I list in Excel the 1917 edition and the 1928 edition separately.

I regard the 1932 reprint as the most complete version—because it has the most color pictures with six—and it is the one I entered into Excel, even though it is likely the rhymes and line drawings are identical to the 1920 edition and so in Excel I have “Pearse/Ackroyd, 1920.” The 1932 repr. notes also reprints in 1925, 1926, 1928, 1930, Mar. 1932, and Oct. 1932. Tracking down all known reprints on the off chance there are more or different color pictures is unfeasible. In the 1932 and 1935 eds. the frontispiece is the same, but then the color pictures seem inserted randomly (not with the rhyme anywhere near the color picture).

The illustrations are always the same as in the original1915-ed. [same in number though??]; what changes are the rhymes without illustrations. For example, there are 139 more un-illustrated rhymes in the 1971 ed. than in the 1915 ed.

The 1916 The Real MG is the definitive version and it is the only ed. entered into Excel.

All rhymes and illustrations in the 1912 Jolly MG Annual are in the 1916 ed. of The Real MG.

Almost of the rhymes are in the same order in both the 1916 and the 1944 eds.; however, a few rhymes in the 1944 ed. are on wildly different pages.

Rhymes (and in some cases the accompanying illustrations) in the 1916 ed. but NOT in the 1944 ed., include: “So vast is the prowess of Harry,” “Mary had a little lamb,” “There was an old woman lived under a hill. She put a mouse in a bag,” “Apple-pie, pudding, and pancake,” “A nick and a nock, a hen and a cock,” “Spring is showery, flowery, blowery,” “Billy, Billy, come out and play,” “Hie, hie, say Anthony,” “Dingty, diddledy, my mammy’s maid,” and “When good King Arthur ruled this land.”
