About a week ago, I catalogued a surprising find, namely the first edition of 1867. At that time, I noted that I had worked my way back through editions of 1873, 1870, and 1868. Well, now, I seem to have completed the circuit! This edition of 1869 means that I have an edition per year from 1867 through 1870 and another from 1873. This edition is published by Samuel R. Wells. The book seems otherwise identical with those of 1867 and 1868, down to the broken typeface on the page numbers for the last two units in the beginning AI. The beginning also has a list of the fifty-five illustrations. Like the other copies, this book is in only fair condition.
