I have two editions of Droodles. One is a very old, standard size paperback that belonged to my father. I’m sorry to say that on looking at it for the first time in many years, I realized that the title page and copyright page are gone, so no printing information. It’s published by Perma Books (something of a misnomer, since it is falling apart) and has the identifying number M-3050. Guessing it dates back to the 1950s. The other is a more modern, somewhat condensed edition, 13th printing published in June 1977.

While they look identical, Fred probably has the better personality.
