SP 2013 Denying Anonymous Access to Lists and Libraries

Good afternoon. We have SharePoint 2013 on-prem installed. Our site is configured to support anonymous users.

The following items all inherit permissions from their parent (the root site). Anonymous users have View Items permission to these items, also.

doclib1 - A document library
folder1 - A folder in doclib1
file1 - A file in folder1

Anonymous users can access the landing page and documents that are not part of any document library. However, they are being prompted to enter credentials if they attempt to access the items above. Any ideas?  Thanks for your suggestions.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The resolution to this question is available below.
 
We had enabled publishing on our site (a Team Site).  This (unintentionally) activated the Limited-access user permission lockdown mode feature. This feature prevents anonymous users from accessing application pages - including lists and libraries. When we deactivated this feature, anonymous were able to access content on the site.

Thanks to Eric Skaggs (@skaggej) for sharing the resolution. For more information, check out http://www.sharepointblogs.be/blogs/vandest/archive/2013/01/26/sharepoint-2013-and-anonymous-users-accessing-lists-and-libraries.aspx.
