A tiny update

As an early birthday present, since we will be busy on my actual birthday with opposite schedules, Chris took me to the Midway antiquarian bookstore to pick out a book. My selection: a surprise boon of the original, out-of-print 1945 edition of Marguerite Henry's Justin Morgan Had a Horse -- prior to its expansion, republication and new copyright in 1954 which remains in publication -- which I only recently learned was a thing, and have never held in my hands before. It even has the dust jacket, although it is missing an regrettably large chunk off the top right. That's extra-important because the gorgeous illustration on this dust jacket does not appear in the book or in/on the revised edition.
