This book largely replicates the first edition of Godolphin's book by James Miller in 1869. See my comments there. Some things have changed. Miller's address has changed from 647 to 799 Broadway. The cover has changed from blue to red/brown, but the gold emboss remains the same, as does the spine. The frontispiece and first illustration exchange places. The illustration for The Stag in the Lake is now on 32, not 58. The illustration for FM, on 124 in the first, is missing here. This later book is slightly taller. It has no advertisements in the back. Three people signed the second last page of this book. Several early pages are loose. By the way, what a difference in price I found between these two copies today!
