Finding the Publishing Date for Old Childrens' Book

I am 63 and when I was little my grandmother gave me a book called "The Yellow Book of Fairy Tales". There is no date on the book. It was published by Whitman Publishing Co, Rancine, WI. Does anyone know how old this book is? The pages are old and worn.
