Rojankovsky's Just So Stories Series: "How the Leopard Got His Spots"

I had never heard of Feodor Rojankovsky in my life before I started collecting children's books. Suffice it to say, getting to know his work has been a great pleasure. A copy of Rudyard Kipling's How the Leopard Got His Spots that was illustrated by Rojankovsky just fell into my lap recently and I wanted to share the full-color illustrations with the Interwebs.

Should you care to look for them, the other volumes in the Just So Stories Series from Garden City Publishing Company are The Elephant's Child, The Butterfly That StampedHow the Camel Got His HumpThe Cat That Walked by Himself and How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin. These illustrations are copyright 1942, all rights reserved to the creator, etc.
