Notes:
"In the first issue there are two mistakes in the spelling on the engraved title ... Pursuit is misspelt "Persuit," Amusement is misspelt "Amusememt." After a few copies the error in "pursuit" was corrected, but the misspelling of amusement remained. It was, however, subsequently corrected."--A.M. Cohn. George Cruikshank.
