Henry Altemus Company      Format: 4      Volumes: 1 - 67
Cloth. Cover has a book appropriate applique with a multi colored illustration. Spine flower is the same as in Format 3 but without any color. Dust jacket matches the book cover or the frontispiece in most but not all the titles. 6.5 x 5.0.

Series Notes:
1. The numbering in this format is the same as that seen in Format 3.
2. Despite the 10 year run of this format these books are somewhat uncommon.
3. The ads in the back of the book are not much help with dating. There are three patterns.
a. Wee Books ads go to Grunty Grunts-Outdoors 1921
b. Wee Books ads list to I Don't Want To Go To Bed -1923
c. Wee Books ads list to Little Black Sambo and the Baby Elephant-1925
Unfortunately it appears these listings were used randomly.
4. Mismatched books with this format's dust jacket but Format 3 books have been seen.
