The illustrations are printed from the plates etched for the First Edition, and the title pages for the two volumes of the Library Edition of 1858-59, also printed from the original steels, have been added. The cover-design of the monthly parts and the frontispiece to the Cheap Edition are printed from the original wood-blocks."--Page V.
