Murray published 7,000 copies of the first edition on November 26, 1872, ... However, there are 2 issues of the first edition, and at least two states on the plates, with a third state in some copies of the tenth thousand of 1873. ... The issue dated 1873 always has the same make up as the second issue of 1872 ....” (Freeman). Point of issue : line 1 of p. 208 contains misspelling for that, "htat". Freeman 1144
