    There is a prefatory note dated 16 August 1876; however, this edition was probably issued in 1879 since the publisher's advertisements are dated August 1879 and EngCat lists a new edition in 1879 at the price of 2s 6d. The series title, "The Mayfair library', is printed on the binding.
    NUCat cites a new edition dated 1876 at PP and PPULC. PP, the library from which the NUCat entry originated, reports that, although its copy has a prefatory note dated 1876, the title-page is undated. The PP copy is almost certainly the same edition as the WYoLU(B) volume catalogued here.% 0275
