dc.description.abstractHere is a second copy, slightly different and again in poor condition, of a book already in the collection. Its front cover, a pictorial red board, shows a circular image of FK. At its bottom is Copyright 1888 O.M. Dunham. This differs from the first copy on the title-page and its verso. Instead of Cassell and Company, Limited: New York, London, Paris and Melbourne, we have New York: Cassell and Company: 104 & 106 Fourth Avenue. On the verso the same change occurs within a framed box. At the page's bottom we find not Press W. L. Mershon & Co., Rahway, N.J. We do find The Mershon Company Press, Rahway, N.J. This copy does have a back cover. I wrote of the first copy that the book is basically the book of the same title I have listed under 1895 as published by A.L. Burt. The texts and the T of C are exactly the same. However, this edition removes all the Billinghurst illustrations. For some it substitutes Griset illustrations. This edition adds a list of illustrations on vii. The paper seems thicker and quite brittle. Cassell was usually involved, I believe, in books of higher quality than this.en_US
