The distinctive difference is "The Rose" on P.27 facing to the left on the copy from Reyal & Hitchcock that are on p.28 facing to the right on the copies from Harcourts. The three other pictures "digging young baobabs", "Prince met a serpent" and "weeping Prince" are also arranged on the different pages.

Harcourt groups used the original illustrations until Harcourt, Brace Jovanovic, Inc. Nevwertheless, the Harcourt, Brace & Company (the second) changed their illustrations after Edition Gallimard. After that, they again changed their pictures when Ed. Gallimard changed their illustrations to the "roll bread" series. These changes will be a result of the copyright.
