The headlines of right-hand pages in that Edition are printed in the margins of this book against the relevant passages. The illustrations and the cover-design of the Monthly Parts are printed from the blocks engraved for the original edition, and the Cheap Edition frontispiece, also printed from the original block, has been added."--Page V.
