See my remarks on the fourteenth edition in 1835. What has changed here? The engravings are now labeled on the title-page as wood engravings. Grant and Griffith has succeeded to John Harris as publisher. The company-name of Bentley the printer has expanded. A new frontispiece pictures The Old Hound and LM. The text-pages are reset in smaller type, and so the whole work finishes now on 214, rather than 222. There are other new illustrations. Some of them face 5, 96, 119, 134, and 139. I will leave it to the next researcher to see which old illustrations have dropped, since there are still seventy-nine illustrations in all. Each plate of illustrations counts as two illustrations, I learned. The new illustrations are on new subjects; they do not redo what had been done earlier. They are perhaps of inferior quality to the originals. There are eighteen pages of advertisements at the back, including mention of this work near the end of them.
