This book is internally exactly the same as the book of the same title that I have listed in the same year. That is has exactly the same plates is clear, e.g., from the broken typeface at the top of 5. There are two things to notice about this book. The first is that it repeats the blooper of that other text on the title-page: Uwards of 200 Illustrations! The second thing to notice is that the cover has become even more outrageous. This cover-maker must have been having fun! On that edition he pictured two young men, apparently a golfer and a pole-vaulter. Here he has two men moving toward the reader in a canoe, the closer one holding a rifle across his lap. Are these the men who have come to shoot the one-eyed deer? The choice of image remains a mystery to me!
