Princess and Joe Potter                            Princess and Joe Potter later      1926 edition

The Princess and Joe Potter, by James Otis (pseudonym of James Otis Kaler)

              Dana Estes,  1898 / L. C. Page, 1926

Otis was a prolific writer of children's books, authoring more than 170 titles. I have identified Sacker designs for at least twenty-four Otis books. Curiously, the later edition, published by L. C. Page in 1926, lacks the border, the monogram, and the added color of the original, as well as some of the spine decoration.  See below for another later edition with gilt design and lettering.
