B&W engraved frontis and 3 engraved plates by J. B. Zwecker. Decorative chapter headings and tailpieces. An extremely scarce edition according to Newbolt (see pg.6): "Binding: Details not known as no copy has been found in original state. It seems probable that it would have followed the style of 4.1" (which is correct: this is the same binding as in the first edition). "Only 2 copies of this impression are known to me, neither of them in the publisher's binding." No copies examined by Newbolt has a catalogue.
