Bibliographic details:
Has some of the same plates as 1st edition (T144876), but this volume is missing the frontispiece portrait. The plates do not interfere with pagination as in 1st ed. However, pagination slips when 49 is misnumbered 47 and the error is continued until sig.E when an adjustment is made, correcting pagination to 73 (page following '70'). Pleasingly, the subsequent poem is entitled 'Colin's Mistakes'... Some prefaratory material from 1st ed. has been moved to the end, continuing the separate pagination of 'The Hind and the Panther Transversed' PLATES: Illustrative plates by Vandergulcht: preceding p.1; on p.[26]; and on p.92.
